Self containted tablesaw, router and planer workstation

RATE THIS:

Like many of you I have a standard size two cargarage that my wife also likes to use to park her car in.  I had a Rigid table saw but also wanted a complete shop that could fit in my garage and still allow room for a car.  my solution was a mobile table saw work station.  I used the basic plan came from WWW.woodonline.com but I had to modify it to suit my needs.  Since I wanted a heavy duty router and planer I elected to get a frame welded together with locking caster wheels from Woodcraft.  I happen to have a very talented bother-in-law who welded mine but and local welder could do yours in an afternoon.  I added a Bench Dog router table extension onto the left side of my table saw and on the right added a wood extention table for mounting my dovetail jig, Leigh FMT or Kreg pocket hole jig.  The table saw sits on a cabinet with electrical and vacuum attachments inside.  I added a vacuum switch with starts and stops the vacuum when any of the three tools are turned on or off.

I am happy to share any other photos or questions.

Nice work Andy! It looks as if you also have a pretty big outfeed table. Could you describe it and post a photo or two?
