Justin’s Tablesaw Workstation

Viewer Project - By Justin Chen from Aurora, IL
Added on March 14, 2013

I’m working in a 2-car garage with a need to have one car parked in the garage, so I’m always in need of space and mobile equipment. This project allowed me to have a router table and some extra storage space for my feather boards, router bits/accessories, etc. As you can see from the tabletop, I still don’t have enough storage space.

The workstation was built in 3 stages.

1st Stage: Table Saw Base
Built the mobile base for the table saw unit. I figured I would have gotten more than 1 drawer out of the unit but after building the dust collection chute, I had very little space left for more storage.

2nd Stage: Extension Base for Router Table and Drawers
I added this for more storage and created a double door to keep access for the table saw internals. I also needed this base so I could create the enclosure for the router table.

3rd Stage: Router Enclosure
As you know the router table can create a lot of saw dust so this was built and seems to work pretty well. I have a 4-1/2″ dust collection port for the enclosure and a aux 2-1/2″ dust collection port for above the table.
