Compact Table Saw Station
Take one of the most versatile tools in your shop and make it even better. That's the idea behind this roll-around table saw station.
I’m always looking for ways to make improvements to my table saw. That’s why I’m so impressed with how this table saw workstation turned out. It started out simply enough. I installed a new T-square rip fence that was more accurate than my old fence and made it easy to rip large sheets of material. Well one thing soon led to another. Now the fence had the capacity to rip wide pieces. But I needed a large extension table to support them. So I built an extension table that attaches to the side of the saw. This table provided an ideal way to save some space in the shop. That’s because it doubles as a router table, see photo B. I even added an adjustable fence so I can use the router table and the table saw without having to “break down” either setup. (Plans for building the router table extension begin on page 8.) CABINETS. The table saw and router table are supported by three cabinets that are “ganged” together as a single unit. These cabinets provide storage, a built-in dust collection system, and a unique caster system that’s definitely worth a closer look. Finally, to “catch” a long workpiece as it comes off the saw table, I added an outfeed support that folds for storage.

Similar Woodsmith Plans
The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
All of the information that you need to build our plans can be found in the standard plan. However, if you want even more granular detail to make your job easier, you should consider our premium plans. These come with additional shop diagrams that we drew when creating the prototypes. Shop drawings are not available for every plan.
