MY SMALL TABLE SAW CART

About: 1945 was a very good year. No, not for wine ... for me. I was born. Yes, I'm old, Father William, but brillig, and my slithy toves still gyre and gimble in the wabe. So let me welcome you to the Little Sho...

Intro: MY SMALL TABLE SAW CART

My table saw is too high. It sits on top of a 36" high cart alongside my miter saw. I want the top of the table saw to be equal to the height of my palm above the ground when I make an L with my hand. And for some reason I keep singing Walk Like An Egyptian.

Step 1: I CAME ACROSS THIS PIECE

This piece of MDF was left here by the previous owners of this house. I figured it was the right size so I decided to make a cut plan based on it.

Step 2: MATERIALS

I bought three 8' 2 x 4s and 4 casters: two lockable and two not.

Step 3: I CUT ALL THE LUMBER TO SIZE

From the three 2 x 4s I had two small pieces left over. I did, however, have to attach a piece to the ripped down leg. You can see it in the last picture. I created corners for the legs from the ripped down 2 x 4s. Glued and screwed.

Step 4: POCKET HOLE DRILLING STATION

I found the perfect spot to set up my permanent pocket hole drilling station. And since I always like to glue and screw, I bought some foam spreading brushes at the Dollar Store. Look at all I got for a buck.

Step 5: ASSEMBLY

I made the top and bottom frames and attached the legs, then screwed on the top and added the casters.

Step 6: I SECURED THE TABLE SAW

I screwed down the table saw and checked the height. I was done. How easy was that?

Step 7: STAY TUNED FOR MY OUTFEED TABLE

This table saw needs an outfeed table. I already found the perfect top for one, and I picked up 4 more casters for it.

Hope you enjoyed this simple cart build. Comments are always welcome and questions are always answered.
