NICE!~!! Thanks bro!
Cheap, strong, practical and nice looking. Usually it’s a case of picking three. This project has all four.
I know it’s shop stock birch plywood (hence still cheap) but at the prices here in Australia that’s $100 worth of 19mm ply in the top.
Awesome idea👌 .
I made one router table( a little bit talller than your cart) a few months ago and use it as table saw cart because I have no garage and needed some kind of router table and table saw cart ,2 in 1.
I’ve also added 2 drawers on the bottom(10 cm high each drawer).
I’m sorry I can’t upload any pictures but looks awesome. Keep doing your awesome jobs!
I still don’t have a table saw but I desperately need one. I think I’ll use this design to store it under my workbench when I get one. Thanks for posting.
Hello my friend,
A beautiful table saw trolley, useful and multi-purpose. Congratulations my friend, your work is always more innovative and practical than serious. I always like your ideas. See you. Stay healthy and happy. Big greetings.
Just bought myself the same Bosch table saw. Great idea to have the trolley – will definitely help to have it more mobile. Some interesting comments from the blog members on dust collection / removal. Is your normal dust vacuum sufficient to remove all the saw dust or does it still accumulate between the base of the saw and the top of your trolley? Could potentially require you to remove the saw from the trolley to clean the excess saw dust. I like the idea of an opening in the trolley top with a small drawer to collect the dust – will facilitate easy cleaning.
Great video – thanks for the useful content.
Good timing. I have the same saw, and have had it for 9 years (bought second hand then). It’s looking battered now but it’s such a workhorse, only thing that’s needed fixing in that time was the brushes! Been playing with designs in my head for a couple years now as the site stand does my nut in, thanks for posting
Brilliant work, John! Nicely done! 😃
I need to make something for my table saw as well…
Anyway, stay safe there with your family! 🖖😊
great job john . i cant stand having to take out comonly used tool like that all the time . its very handy to be able to walk over and cut what you want . i like that you can set it up anywhere around the mft to avoid what your working un.
a nice bonus with this is that you can use it as an outfeed to the router table
Built something very similar for my dewalt 745 table saw. I later added an outfeed table and side wing so in effect it’s a cabinet saw of sorts and separate to my MFT, as I’m fortunate enough to have the space. Great work John, hope the back’s ok, nightmar3 when it goes.
John, buddy… you always pull through my man!
I’m going to get my 1st table saw. This looks a great set up but I’m just a beginner but it’s inspiring for all of us no matter what level we’re at.
This is perfect.super simple yet great for its purpose. Will build myself very similar just thinking if I could stick dust extraction in it 🤔
Which type of bosch job site table saw you have please?
Great job John I can think of a couple of uses for this type of construction in our workshop .
You put out great content! Thinking of something similar in the center of my shop. Would love to see how you tie in your dust collection and power for the saw.
Great work John, do you find any limitations with a job site saw? Compared to a standalone table saw
Where are you getting the construction timber that doesn’t have the eased edges from John? The only stuff I can find near me is CLS with the rounded edges…
It’s so much easier when you don’t have to set anything up to use.Great build and I like that everything is at a hands reach thanks for sharing
Great work John. Nice job.
Construction lumber works great for shop furniture.
I have the same saw so I know how back breaking heavy it is! I struggled with mine, so made an almost identical trolley, but on mine I added a drawer at the top, and left top open to catch as much saw dust as possible in the drawer, because it does throw out a lot of dust from the bottom.
Hi John, really useful video thanks. Please will you put up a link to the castors you used? Thanks
I like to add a comment as I know it adds to the alg to get you noticed, keep adding those subscribers John
Hi John. Hope you don’t mind me asking this question. I am looking to buy some festool products from a private seller located in Belfast amd get them posted to Glasgow. Do you know if they will be subject to custom fees. Have trouble finding answers on Google and hmrc website is a minefield. I know you recently mentioned something about fees in a recent video so I thought I would ask and see if you can shed some light on the subject. Thanks in advance. Looking forward to seeing your next project.
Another great video, thanks. I am amazed you lasted as long as you did lifting it out every time you needed it, I’ve the same saw and I was amazed how heavy it was just getting it out of the box…once. All my workbenches are made using your 4*2 construction method, great way to do it without costing the earth. Where did you get the blade hanger/guards from?
I have a 1955 cast iron Craftsman contractor saw so it’s pretty dang heavy. This would work great! The issue is the saw dust goes down. Any reason I couldn’t put a hole in the center of the table and a bin in the bottom shelf? I’m just starting out so this is perfect timing.
Nice sturdy design, having the saw more easily accessible, I think you will get much more use out of it. Good to have all the storage around it to make the accessories to hand as well.
Simple yet very effective design. Maybe it’s just me but one of the biggest reasons I subscribed to your channel is the fact that you are genuinely happy when you make stuff and your reaction to the finished product is very appealing to me, that is rarely seen nowadays 😊 At the end of the day all these things we make are supposed to make our jobs and lives easier and we should be happy about everything we make. Keep up the good work and stay safe out there!
Great video as always, love my Bosch tools I have many of their tools GCM12SD miter saw RA1181 router table their 18 volt line up, circular saw jig saw drill impact corded orbital corded palm router waiting on their fixed base router to attach to my router table, again great build and thanks for sharing
I have made a few carts myself they are really handy good job John
Great build. I built something similar about 6 months ago for my table saw and decided to copy your L bracket method. End result looks like an uglier version of what you’ve done but has worked great for me. Thanks for the videos!
Now that is just what I’m wanting for my portable Bosch site saw I use in my shed. This will also save me lugging it around to as I get back pain lately.. I love the design and the way you put it together. All in all a great build tutorial mate and thank you so very much for this as it will help me so much and I won’t have to carry the table saw anymore. 😁😁😁😁😁😁. I just liked and Subscribed and I look forward to seeing more great builds from your channel. Thank you again and take care mate and be safe. 👍👍👍👍
Nice idea. I like it for my dewalt planer. It is 90 pounds or 40 k so it is also a back breaker. Look forward to seeing your wood storage idea. “Crack on”.
John love the cart… but I’m going to use it for a new planer… perfect design for my small Shop/Garage. I liked how you had a problem and fitted the the saw to the table… that’s what a lot of woodworkers have… shop problems, size, noise, dust, lighting etc. Great way to address saw, table problem! …you do great videos!
Great idea. I have the portable DeWalt table saw on its factory stand so I raised my work table up to that height to use it for an out feed table as well.
I love your 4×2 construction so much I’m addicted to it John! It’s solid as a rock and it’ll outlast us all. Keep it coming.
Great little product, but a massive saver in time and for the back
Great video as always. Keep up the work, I’m always happy to see another upload from your channel and incorporating your ideas into my shop.
I made four 2′ by 4′ work benches……one has the the tablesaw, one has the mitersaw, one is flat with a Built-in router table and the other is just a flat work table…. The work surfaces on all 4 are exactly the same size, so everything can be used as an outfit and I can lower the router blade on the router table and have 2 flat work surfaces as outfeed or infeed…..
I made a much more complicated bench which had the same Bosch saw at it’s heart but used the table extensions in their extended position and filled in the resultant space to make a large work surface. In truth I may have been better off building your model and a separate bench. Perhaps on another day but what I’ve done works well so I’m happy.
Great design, I bought that table saw last year and built one similar to yours, I overengineered mine a bit I wish I’d seen yours first. By the way I put a little bearing on the far end of the fence, difference is night and day.
You make it look so easy John 🙂 So well done!!!
Quick and simple back saver .
This is great, I’m definitely going to build one for my Bosch.
John, another wonderful presentation. This approach demonstrates the true skills of any good joiner/carpenter. That ability to plan, and build simple, but durable projects, without unnecessary complication. Conversely, the ability and skill to be able to construct cabinet quality products when called for. Just love the practical and simplistic way you deliver your videos. Keep up the good work. Len (Devon 🇬🇧)
Where do u get your timber in Ireland
I’ve built several of these, but with open sides. I learned and started using the L corners from the beginning, so that is my normal building method. I like how you put the blades on the side.
I only have two fixed wheels on the rear of my table saw so I move it around like a hand-truck. But, since I don’t back it up to the bench very much, it tends to slide/roll a little. I haven’t fully decided on how I’ll change that for the next build coming up later this summer.
I’m building a new one, soon, to be taller to match the top of my new, taller workbench. I’ll be boxing it in like yours and hanging my blades and tools on the side, too. Only, I’ll be adding some kind of closure on the front. My experience is that sawdust tends to fill the space if it is open.
Thank you for sharing!
Super simple roller stand and just in time as I’ve just finished my homemade router table and needed a stand for it in order to start my new shaker kitchen doors build. Great build as always John.👍🏻👍🏻
