This sturdy but mobile cabinet will improve your tablesaw setup with storage space two different options for dust collection and an outfeed support for long workpieces

Table Saw Base Mobile

lie stand that came with my table saw always struck me as a bit of an afterthought — a "bare bones" metal frame that supported the saw. But by replacing it with this shop-built cabinet, I was able to make a number of worthwhile improvements.

storage. First, there's a large drawer for storing jigs, accessories, and saw blades. And the miter gauge, rip fence, and push stick are held in place with simple holders when not in use.

dust collection. Besides adding storage, the cabinet also provides a way to control dust. A pullout bin collects the dust (see photo at right). Or, as an option, you could hook a dust collector up to the bin (refer to page 56).

stability. Another thing I like about this cabinet is that it's much more stable than my old metal stand. The reason is simple — it's heavier. Made from medium-density fiberboard (MDF) and Douglas fir, there's enough mass to clamp the saw's vibration.

But regardless of its weight, casters make the stand easy to roll wherever you need it. And once it's in place, spe

cial levelers raise it off the casters for rock solid support.

optional outfeed support. OllCe I finished the cabinet, I decided to add an outfeed support. It attaches to the back of the cabinet with a couple of knobs. For more on the outfeed support, see the Designer's Notebook on page 59.
