I needed to rip up a lot of timber for some roofing joists in my workshop. They were to be filleted into some plastic boards, so I needed to do them accurately. As a saw table would be around £90 minimum and probably wouldn't get used after the workshop was completed I decided to see what was on offer in Instructables. What I found was a number of excellent designs which used everyday workshop tools. As my workshop is still being built these weren't at my disposal. I have my trusty old B&D circular saw and decided to make a table out of laminate flooring. This medium is thin, so I won't need to router out a recess, I can just build the area around the saw plate up with further layers. It is very square and has a tough polished surface. I popped down to the local Homebase and found a pack that was damaged. The original price was £25 ($40) I got it for £13 ($20). An acceptable price for a temporary job. I also bought a NVR on/off switch as the saw trigger will have to be held open and under the table. The one I bought has a three pin plug in and out so no additional wiring is required. This cost £20 but will have many uses in my workshop.
So far I have used 1 pack of Laminated Flooring
1 tube of no more nails fast grip glue
1 No Volt Release on/off switch
1 unsuspecting pallet
1 load of 2" and 3" screws
450mm 20mm square box mild steel
3 m6 x 90mm carriage bolts, m6 nuts etc
