Rolling Table Saw Base

I work in a small shop like most of us do and for me the secret has been Rolling Bases. Thought I would share the before and after photos of my table saw base. 3/4 ply construction with two draws. One big for… the big things that always are left out. The other for the blades. This of course rolls, but I was able to build it to a height that matched the benches and tables I have. Hope you get some ideas from it.

Looks good. I have something similar in mind but my stupid floor is pitched so the only way to level out the table elevation is to fix it in place. I may use casters for the one in a blue moon cut that requires me to turn the saw 90°. Having more storage is definitely a bonus!

Fixed is always best. I have to remind myself to lock all four wheels. I have forgot on more then one occasion and you know that big sheet is the one you are cutting when you forget. Dang it! If you see any good ideas for rolling but a better locking devise, let me know. Thanks, John

Oh… did you see the typo on the headline. I never post anything, and the first time I do… there it is. All over FB too. Man… u got to believe me, it was auto correct. Honest!

I like the added storage John.

Mine has to roll since I push everything to the side when I am done. My wife park inside.

There’s a lot of us “Roller” out there lanwater. The storage was a good idea. I’ve been using Sketch-Up for a long time and its a great way to see what the end result is going to be. The storage came from looking at it in SU.. Brian kind of inspired me to Blog this stuff and I’ve never done that so check it out. I’m kind of getting the hang of it. Kinda!
