Table Saw Workstation

Table Saw Workstation Benchtop table saws are designed for rough-and-tumble work at a jobsite. But their compact size and low price make them attractive for woodworkers, too. (I’ve used one for years.) Still, they do have some limitations. The small size of the saw table makes it nearly impossible to cut large workpieces — like plywood and MDF. And finding a place to put the saw can be a challenge. That’s where this station comes in. It provides a feature-packed home for your saw. As you can see in the photo, it extends to create a large work area to tackle almost any size workpiece. To top it off, the whole thing folds up into a compact package you can store in any corner of the garage or shop. The cutting diagrams and materials list are available to download in this Online Extra. (See download link above)
