How to Make Table Saw and Work Carts

How to Make Table Saw and Work Carts

This is how I made two wheeled carts, one for my new table saw and one to act as an outfeed table or workbench. They were cheap and easy to build.

    Good explanation & documentation!



  7. Howard McLean on September 16, 2022 at 1:47 am

    Love your outfeed table. Great use of a Dewalt box. Seriously love the easy build. I will use it because of lack of space in my shop. Thanks.

    yay no pocket holes!



  9. Terry Wong on September 16, 2022 at 1:51 am

    Thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Great project. I am considering a new DWE7485 compact 8 1/4 table saw with no stand because the stands prove to be pretty unstable. It will replace my old 1951 Cast Iron Craftsman. This cart is just what I need for the new saw. And I love the idea of the outfeed table/cart as well. Since I have the BoraMate castors from the base I built for the old craftsman, I will use them for this cart. I would definitely recommend them or something similar over regular locking castors. My BoraMates were spendy at $50 per set they were needed for the heavy old craftsman. And when you set them down they STAY! Great video. Subbed you! Looking forward to seeing some more of your stuff.

    Great video! I have a Milwaukee m18 saw made the legs 16 inches and with the plywood it worked to where I can use my folding tables as the extra tables thank you soo Much



  14. Commander Q on September 16, 2022 at 1:55 am

    Never thought of ying the box as a out feed table๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

    You made a great video. I followed your super easy instructions and made a cart for my mobile saw this after noon! It was amazingly simple.



  17. Scott Bentley on September 16, 2022 at 1:58 am

    Used your video and plans last weekend to make a cart for my new tablesaw. Only had two issues: from originally watching this video until standing in Loweโ€™s with the parts list was about 1 weeks time. In that time I forgot youโ€™d built two carts. I only needed to build one. I blindly bought everything on the parts list. Only realized I had twice as many 2x4s as I needed when I got home and started unloading . Second thing, I was trying to match my overall height of my cart + saw to an existing workbench. Came up about 1/4 inch short. Plan is to grab a 2 foot by 2 foot piece of 1/4 plywood today and slap it on top. So a couple goofs on my part but ended up with a solid little cart. Thanks for helping me kickoff my first project.



  18. Robert Lamora on September 16, 2022 at 1:58 am

    This is just what I need,,,, I just got my first table saw, and it has no stand



  19. Small Loft Workshop on September 16, 2022 at 1:59 am

    This build is perfect for my small shop ๐Ÿ‘



  20. OIncer on September 16, 2022 at 2:00 am

    Making this tomorrow first thing in the morning !!



  21. Pierre HARRIBEY on September 16, 2022 at 2:01 am

    Hello, you have chosen your dimensions according to the model you have of the DEWALT. Is it the DWE7485-QS or the DWE7492-QS? it’s not the same size at all
    I would like to adapt these dimensions for the BOSCH GTS 10 J
    Cordially



  22. jeffsond on September 16, 2022 at 2:03 am

    Nice job!! Now one of those carts cost $200 to build..๐Ÿ˜œ



  23. FreeSoftware on September 16, 2022 at 2:03 am

    Hmm.. no issues with the two carts being apart from each other [whilst sawing]? Although, I see the advantage moving the bigger cart around, and use it wherever you’ll need it [out-feed table]



  24. Savage 17 on September 16, 2022 at 2:04 am

    Great video! I have a HFT Hercules saw I need to build something for. I like the idea of two independent carts.



  25. Norman Merrill on September 16, 2022 at 2:05 am

    Good, uncomplicated design with flexibility I need…thanks



  26. John Whitley on September 16, 2022 at 2:05 am

    Great build!! Strong, sturdy and simple stand…. This is what I need for my"new" 13" Delta planer I just got. Thanks ๐Ÿ‘!!



  27. Ketogenicinfo on September 16, 2022 at 2:07 am

    Is that the Dewalt 8.5 inch compact table saw?



  28. Jeffrey Cunningtown on September 16, 2022 at 2:07 am

    There are many similar projects in woodglut’s plans.



  29. Tustinman on September 16, 2022 at 2:07 am

    This is amazing and what I was looking for. I made it following your plans but there is a minor error, on the quarter Sheets Plywood, reads 21" (51cm), should be 20" (51cm).
    Overall fits perfect for my Dewalt 7485. Thank you again,



  30. David McGrath on September 16, 2022 at 2:07 am

    That bottom storage will be great for collecting saw dust



  31. Richard Brouillette on September 16, 2022 at 2:07 am

    good project for my dewalt saw



  32. Cathal MC NALLY on September 16, 2022 at 2:10 am

    This stuff is childsplay if you need to follow this itโ€™s not for you.



  33. Scott Tribout on September 16, 2022 at 2:11 am

    This looks great. BUT what if you made two taller tables at 12×20 instead of (1) 20×24? Added hinges on the side? This would IMO keep the tables from separating while in use, and allow you to use 1 as and outfeed table while the other is a side support table. (For plywood) Also I would have raised the short table so the saw is say 1/8" higher than the tall one. Just to reduce the chance of catching on it during outfeed.



  34. DariusMaximilian on September 16, 2022 at 2:13 am

    Brilliant. Just what I was thinking of doing too for my as-yet-to-be-purchased table saw. Thank you!



  35. Ray Scrafield on September 16, 2022 at 2:15 am

    Well done video. The only thing that bothered me is that they both seem to "rock". Not sure if it’s the floor or that your stands are out of square. The idea is great though. Quick and easy.



  36. Gary Balsamo on September 16, 2022 at 2:18 am

    Please tell me how to get instructions and parts I don’t see link on my computer for plans THX



  37. Ron Wood on September 16, 2022 at 2:21 am

    You are great. Thank you for European scale



  41. John Mckell on September 16, 2022 at 2:24 am

    Simple effective, strong and certainly pleasant to look at tables…



  42. Robert Lamora on September 16, 2022 at 2:26 am

    Love this video I just bought a table saw and this is exactly what I need..thanks



  43. Lisa Lovely LPA on September 16, 2022 at 2:26 am

    Easy and nice clear presentation.



  44. Alexplorer on September 16, 2022 at 2:27 am

    For those looking to make this: Get a miter saw first!



  45. aral2dmax on September 16, 2022 at 2:27 am

    Dude love it , not also that, I love the way you put the dimension . It’s really easy to follow. 3 thumbs up.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘



  46. Dan Alaniz on September 16, 2022 at 2:28 am

    Great job! I made a similar one earlier this week for my miter saw. Only problem I have is that using 2×4’s really makes the cart heavy but I guess it needs to be so that it remains sturdy. Thanks for the post.



  47. Tyler Ngo on September 16, 2022 at 2:29 am

    thank you for sharing.



  48. Jo on September 16, 2022 at 2:30 am
