    Yes with some slight modifications. I used pocket holes to fasten the saw supports down. I also decided I only needed the swing out arm on the left side (it's folded back in the photo out of sight) so I skipped it on the right side which is near the corner of the room. My saw is also wider that the one Norm used so I had to adjust for that. Overall I really like it, though I've never cared about moving it anywhere like a job site - that top piece is heavy. It's nice that the shop vac fits underneath it. You'll also notice in my other pictures the work table and clamp cart. I love the work table and it is rock solid - I've had the whole family sitting on it and it didn't even wiggle, but when you pick it up on the casters it just glides around easily. I modified it to have a 1/8" masonite top on top of the MDF so I could replace the really cheap masonite instead of the MDF when it got damaged. I also made the work table 1/8" lower than my table saw height so I use it as an outfeed table which is big enough to handle ripping a sheet of plywood (though now that I have a Festool TS55 I'll never use my table saw for plywood again).
