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.
