no previous part Part 1 of Table Saw Cabinet with router incert and lots of draws. series Part 2: Whats an out-feed table without a Panel Sled? »

Here is my idea of a ultimate work station for and around my cabinet saw. Here is a progression of photos as I build each stage.
First is the cabinets with where the router will be there are 6 adjustable feet that allow me to adjust from “0” to about “2” inches so every surface will be perfectly level with the Table saw..
Next is the top torsion box that will support the fence out to 54”

Here you can see the top on the torsion box this will give me a surface 54” X 72” once the out-feed table is incorporated at the back of the saw.
Tomorrow the 6 sets of draw guides should be here that I ordered from Rockler. The draws will be more of a shallow tray not more then 4” to 5” in hight even though the opening is 7” high.
Heres a few different angles

Your pictures are very helpful. I plan to do the same this summer. I only hope I do as good a job as you. Nice work!

Thanks, the router insert is an after thought. Today I will try to build the box for it. I think I will put a draw or two in there as well for bits and such.

Well I have decided not to put the pouter into the table for two reasons I need to have the router raised up above the table so I can do router operations on curved projects that can not be done on a flat table. The other reason is I would prefer a mobile router table I can store against the wall.

Have your say...
