This time I'll make a homemade table saw by using regular circular saw
How I did it - you can check by looking DIY video or you can follow up instructions bellow.

For this project you will need:

Materials:

Melamine, plywood or other board for table top and legs

Wood screws (50mm) and 16mm with flat head

Circular saw

Zip tie

Power strip

Tools:

Drill and bits

Clamps

Square

A file

Step 1: Preparation

Drilled 5 4mm holes in circular saw base - that's will be new fixing points to the board. Also cleaned burs left after drilling.

<p>Good job ! I want to create one :)</p>
<p>Step 5: Electric Part, from image I see that you have pull down on the top piece, this is really dangers setup, you need something more rigid, with this setup you can only cut small pieces of plywood. Circular saw have a lot of vibrations, and you do not have space to screw bigger screws from the bottom side. Good luck and my suggestion is to buy solid wood and build it again.<br><br>This is <a href="https://www.instructables.com/id/Table-for-Circular-Saw-Less-Than-55/">my setup</a>, I do not want to promote my self just to compare my table legs with yours.</p>
<p>genius!!</p>
This instructable should really be taken down, this whole setup is extremely dangerous and just asking for dismemberment, impalement, or worse. There is a very good reason why tablesaws have safety pawls, riving knives, and a fence that isn't questionable at best. Anyone using this rigged deathtrap is asking for wood to bind up, the saw to break free, or deadly kickback to occur.<br><br>Again, DO NOT DO THIS AT HOME.<br><br>Or, really ever.<br><br>THIS INSTRUCTABLE IS A TERRIBLE IDEA. It's only marginally better than zip tying a saw to an upside down milkcrate.
<p>that look's dangerous to me ...</p>
<p>Asking for an accident IMO.</p><p>For the cost of the circular saw and the plywood you could pickup an inexpensive used table saw with a guard, splitter, etc... Not to mention the issues with fence alignment, accuracy, stability... lack of dust collection... </p><p>Anyone considering doing this should think about the risks very carefully.</p>
<p>I wondered how you manage crosscuts, but see you made a sled for that in another Instructsble. It is generally a good idea to keep the blade as low as possible. If you hand slips onto the blade during cutting, you have a flesh wound. You have not lost a finger.</p>
