Mobile Tablesaw Cart

I recently purchased a new tablesaw to use in my Weekend Woodworker course. It’s a good quality, affordable saw, but it didn’t come with a stand. This mobile tablesaw cart is a perfect solution: it’s on casters so I can easily roll it around to wherever I want to work and it’s got two drawers for keeping my table saw accessories handy.

The construction is pretty simple, just a basic cabinet. I cut all the frame pieces out of solid pine lumber and joined them together with pocket screws.

I cut some scrap plywood pieces to use as spacers for positioning the middle stretcher on the face frame.

I screwed all four side frames together.

Then screwed plywood panels inside the rear and sides, and screwed drawer runners to them.

I made the drawers by cutting rabbet joints on the ends of plywood boards, glued them together, and dropped in thin plywood bottoms.

Next, I screwed on false fronts to the drawers and added some drawer pulls.

Finally, I screwed on the top and bottom of the cart and attached the locking casters.

  1. I found it interesting that you used your old table saw to make a bench for your new saw. Just giving you a hard time. Great project. Good job showing how to make simple drawers.

  2. I’m curious why you would make a frame then line it with 3/4″ plywood. Wouldn’t the 3/4 do just fine by itself with some 2″ screws?

  3. I thought something similar to the above poster. Overall though, this is a great tutorial. I’m probably going to make this myself for one of my spaces. To make things more precise and introduce some finer detailing I’d like to employ a CNC router for cutting – at this point it’s a matter of getting one. I found a program that shows you how to build one at home for three figures and I’ve been reading up on it a bit — on this page, for example, the guy says that he put together this machine for under $300. Have you heard of it? Thanks again for the guide.

  4. Newbie here and learning a lot.
    Appreciate the Sketchup and PDF plans.
    Looking fwd to trying this soon –
    Thank you!
