Well with the router table and the fence installed on my Craftsman it gets kind of tippy on that end. I needed to add some legs, but that would take away the mobility from my wheeled table saw tool stand.

Also I wanted to have my shopvac tucked under and roll with the saw so I’m starting on a Table Saw Workcenter I found in Woodsmith “Table Saw Secrets” specialty mag I had picked up, with some mods on almost every aspect!

First off I used an old bed frame we had for the base instead of putting in on the floor, stationary. I picked up some 4” casters on stems that fit inside the existing frame feet exactly, allowing me to be able to lock or unlock the casters with my feet being higher off the ground than my current casters. Here is the frame on top of the workcenter base getting cut to size and screwed on.
The base is 2×4 with a 3/4” MDF topper.

Next we’ll get some cabinets built.
