My garage is kinda small, I have a corner for my tools. But I need to pull them out into the drive way to do any work. So portable is the key. I had a table saw on a stand that I'd have to pick up to move, and I bought a miter saw.

Step 1: Wheels

I started with 3 inch lockable wheels. This works great for moving over the driveway - garage transition.

Step 2: Basic Frame

The table is made from 2x4s. very strong. The 2x4s are joined using pocket screws. I used a Kreg pocket hole jig.

Step 3: Sides

Both sides, and back have fold up tables, the top is about 8 feet long, and 4 feet wide.

Step 4: Drawers

The drawers are saw dust collectors, and storage for saw accessories while not in use. I used some scrap plywood to make a lip for the drawers to sit on.

Step 5: Miter Saw

The miter saw can be moved to the bottom while not in use.

Step 6: Over View

11 2x4s, 1 sheet of 1/2 inch plywood, and 4 wheels. Over all cost less than $100.

<p>Hi, What did you use to attach the folding tables?</p>
<p>I used regular door hinges. Then I used 2x4's for the braces with a 45 degree notch at both ends. Then when I need them raised, I wedge them in. See compliation picture. </p>
Not quite an instructable is it. looks good though.
My intention was to inspire. And it was build to fit my table and miter saws. I'm happy to give more details.
<p>This looks great! I hope it works better for you :)</p>
