Phil’s Tablesaw Work Station

This project is an idea I took from WOOD magazine and modified it to suit my needs. Since I share the garage with my wife, I have to set up shop in our drive way. I wanted something that I could combine several working operations into one mobile unit, and store the tools I most frequently use. This tablesaw work station accomplishes all those needs.
The tablesaw is a Ridgid TS3650 upgraded with a Biesemeyer fence and Bench Dog router table extension. The worktop is made of a solid core door, banded with walnut and outfitted with a 9″ Rockler vise. The edge banding and drawer fronts are maple. The drawer pulls are walnut. The cabinet cases are constructed of MDO plywood. I used Watco Danish Oil to finish the project.
