Extension Table Support Cabinet

Powermatic Table Saw

The table saw is the central focus of the shop. The Powermatic 66 is a real workhorse. The extension table on the right side did not have the legs shown in this stock photo. After building a rear outfeed table and downdraft table, I installed a shop built drawer cabinet with a dual purpose of extension table support and storage for table saw accessories.

I designed the width of the unit to accommodate a large metal drawer that I recycled.

The height of the cabinet was designed to just fit under the extension table.

Here is the carcase with substantial lower rails for a large metal drawer. Upper rails will be for three shop made wooden drawers.



Here is the carcase with the metal drawer installed.

Levelers are seen on the side.

The three shop built drawers were constructed with 1/2 inch birch plywood with 1/4 inch luan bottoms.
Adjustable feet will allow the unit to be installed and then be elevated to make contact with the bottom of the extesnsion table to both support the table and secure the cabinet..
Carcase installed under the extension table.

Finished unit installed.

The dust collection baffle support has a top and has been secured to the side of the cabinet.

All hardware was recycled.
