Building a Workbench Around the Craftsman Table Saw

Building a Workbench Around the Craftsman Table Saw

In my last video, I went into an in-depth review on the contractor-style table saw made by Craftsman and stated how I wasn’t really a fan of the stand that came with the tool. Now, I’m fixing it by building a massive new workbench around the table saw!

    How did you build your sleds? The tabbed slots are a challenge when building any jigs.

    Nice. I have a very old Craftsman Table Saw (as in >60 years) that I’ve rebuilt a few times and am still using. I love your bench, could only wish I had the space for such a thing! Very nice. ❤

    lol i got this saw about a month ago after binge watching some diy videos. i went to go make me a table for it. dont think that should of been my first project 😀 its tall as hell and basically unusable for any of my saws… the blades are basically in my face 😀 – i like it tho because its high up, but not good for cutting at all… thinking about making a addon to the side of it that sits lower for the saws… i dunno – yours looks awesome tho! keep the videos coming…. im enjoying your channel

    Btw also have limited shop space, so was considering adding folding side and rear tops for when I need to reduce larger pieces than normal. Thought I’d share that idea with you. 👍

    Great build….I’m looking to get one done myself. But definitely do that t-track. Also maybe incorporate one a folding arm table extension so you can cut bigger plywoods. Awesome build looking forward to that next diy upgrade

    Can u upload pictures of your plan or email them ?

    Did you ever make a cut sheet for this. I would love to make one for mine cause it’s the exact same saw.

    Well done, nice compact design with lots of functionality.

    You’re thinking, ‘I wanna gat this thing DONE.’ 😁

    Finally someone else fighting with craftsman tablesaw. It does the job but so many things I wish were different

    Hi Ry! I’m not long from getting started doing something similar for my small de-walt table saw, will make the world of difference. Looks like a great design, simple but effective. Found your profile on woodworking youtubers, I’ve subbed up!

  13. Lem Hanback on June 7, 2023 at 1:17 pm

    Not too shabby, enjoyed watching you use a level as a temporary fence. Also thought of making a similar style bench.. Think I bought the slightly cheaper version of your saw. I was surprised to discover only one miter slot so will have to leave a slight gap on left side to stabilize miter sled. Hope you left a slight gap in the back so you can still use your fence. If not I’m sure you will solve that issue easily. Wishing you many hours of happy woodworking.

    Do you have a cut list and plans for this project?

  15. Kelly Goines on June 7, 2023 at 1:20 pm

    What about fence functionality?

  16. joseph zethner on June 7, 2023 at 1:20 pm

    Really nice job but for a 200 dollar saw I think it’s not worth all that – the lumber and supplies are going to cost double the saw price and the saw is only going to last a couple years especially with plastic gears for raising and lowering the blade

    Get rid of that car in there and make yourself a real shop

  18. Roger Azevedo on June 7, 2023 at 1:32 pm

    Hi. I am about to build a table saw for exactly the sama reason as you.
    I been searching here the best project and I found yours to be the best I’ve seen for my purpose.
    I like the design and the functionality of it.
    I am adding foldable side tables to be able to cut bigger sheets.
    Thanks for the tip and keep up the good work.

    This is awesome! We definitely need to make a bench for our table saw! I’m tired of pulling out the skill saw every-time we need to cut a piece of plywood! Thanks for the video!
