Table for Table Saw
I have decided that I would like to build a "cart" for my new table saw and also build a hinged table so that I can expand the table space when needed. I have been trying to plan this out and have come across an interesting situation. I have seen many other setups to gather ideas and inspiration from and I have seen a variety of everything. I couldn't help but notice that some people place the saw in the left corner, some in the middle, and some in the right?
With that said, how does one decide where to place the table saw when building a bigger table for it? I cant think of much other than:
A. I'm right handed, so it makes more sense (to me) to have the fence on my left and to have the saw either in the middle or the center.
B. If I have some 8x4 plywood, it seems to me that I should have at least 4' of table starting from the blade, and if that's the case, then it seems to make more sense to have the table saw in the middle, so there's at least 4' on either side of the blade.
So, how does one figure out where to put his saw? Am I reading to much into this? What questions should I be asking myself when trying to figure this out?
Thanks for the help
