Some time in the next couple months I plan on building a station for my Cman 113 contractors saw. I’m really like the one featured in shopnotes and plan to build something similar to this (pic attached). The only real difference in how I would like to build it is I’d like to keep the cast iron wings attached and I’d also like to enlarge to top surface to a full 4’x8’. I would really love to add about 1’ of work surface to the left of blade, 14” to the rear, 6” to the front and 6’ ft to the right of the blade. In order to do this My thoughts are to cut a rectangle the deminsions of the t/s from the rear in 1.5” MDF so the tablesAw and wings would be to the left/center with about a 1’ gap in the rear the would be filled with removeable panel. The surface would be wrapped in perhaps some q/s 8/4 maple.
My worries and questions are how difficult would it be to get the saw squared up to the surface? This is probably critical because my fence would be attached to the surface and not the iron top itself. Also would this effect the accuracy of my fence? Also add any othe thoughts and concerns.
