I think you have 2 choices…...either build a riser (I’m assuming your saw has legs being a contractor saw) wide enough and tall enough for the legs to sit firmly on and won’t rock, OR build a saw cabinet (including the saw table top) high enough to flush up aganist the outfeed table and work bench. I did both…..I have an old Craftsman saw (1985) that I removed the legs from and built a cabinet for it a couple of years back. I also have a Unisaw that was too low for me (34”), so I built a riser 3” high and raised it up…..I then built my outfeed table to that same highth….....I have the 2 saws back-to-back using the same outfeed table. The old saw is strickly for dados and rabbits, and the Uni is for everything else…. Go to my blogs and read about “A new look for an old workhorse”, and then take a look at my woodshop pics, and you’ll see the Uni w/ the riser.
