Table Saw Workstation

Based on plans from Woodsmith.

The biggest issue I had was lack of an outfeed table. Space is always a premium, so I wanted something small and mobile. Found these plans on Woodsmith, and it seemed like just what I was looking for. The outfeed support stands have gaps at the top that match the miter slots in the saw table. That way if the stands are folded up, you can still use a sled. Fully extended, the stands will support 8 ft long boards. The case has two shelves for sleds and jigs.

The plans are far more elaborate, offering fold up wings and infeed support. I have no need for those now, but it will be easy to add them on later if I need to.

If these plans look like something you're interested in, just keep in mind that the measurements are specific to the size of the saw. My case is several inches wider and longer than the dimensions listed in the plans - so make adjustments accordingly.

Love the sliding rail idea......

Great way to conserve space and have two different length supports!
If that was your idea, kudos. If not, thanks for spreading the word.




Are the bottom notches to clear the caster wheels?

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Looks good, only comment I can make is perhaps have some kind of height adjustment on bottom of legs for uneven floors.

Yep!

The outfeed runners are about 1/8" below the surface of the saw table. The adjustment knobs use 1/4-20 screws and the slots are 5/16, so there's a bit of up and down movement there as well.

Made a modification to the cart.

My garage floor is uneven, so at any given time there were usually only 3 casters touching the ground. Locking the casters didn't do much to prevent the cart from moving - and I didn't want to chase my table saw around while in use. OSHA would not approve. I was going to buy some floor locks, but they're expensive (about $100 for 4).

I built up some plywood feet and added these stepdown casters. The legs are also braced underneath. Problem solved (for about $40).

My outfeed table is two adjustable sawhorses with a piece of plywood laying across the sawhorses. It's cheap and easy to move if I need to. It doesn't look all that good but it works.
