Introduction: MY SMALL TABLE SAW CART

About: In my shop I have a name for hammer, saw, and plier. The saw is Tess, the hammer's Joe, and Glumdalclitch is the plier. Yes, I'm brillig, and my slithy toves still gyre and gimble in the wabe. With that, le…

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.
