Space-Saving Drop-Down Table Saw Cabinet

Not all people have the luxury of large studio. Even with all the limitation, the project cannot be stopped. Luckily, there is a brilliant solution for the problem. One of them is by maximizing the use of cabinet space. It would be the new charm of limited space table saw setting.

Drawing Layout And Pre-Drilling

To start the project, the carpenters should draw the layout of the table saw cabinet on both wood materials and cabinet wall. Please mark carefully where the helping board should be attached. It is recommended to use this board even though the cabinet plywood is made of highest grade product. Dry a lot of pocket holes on the board. After that, continue with assembling them to wrap the inside.

Determining Pivot Point

Since the technology relies heavily on folding and expanding the table saw, make sure to point out suitable pivot points. In the sides, the pivot depth should be half inches, while the ones on each side of the cabinet would be around 6 inches. Don’t forget to measure the face of the cabinet. It should have the same size with the table bottom.

Reinforcing the Cabinets

There is a commercial gauge product that happens to have half inches hole. Doesn’t it fit perfectly to the previous measurement? Take this tool to cut the section. Let the rod go through the hole and the plate should be clamped so it could be traced. Do the tracing point with blade instead of pencil.

If the carpenter is planning to use the door as the table top, don’t forget to put strut system with multi contact ball. Single ball strut system will make the opening process difficult. For those who already bought the single strut, fix it by using wooden dowel and T-nuts.

Assembling the Pieces

The last thing to do is assembling the parts. Slide the rods to the holes and connect to the wall using toggles. If needed, the wood makers could use the french cleat system. Adjust the height of the table by pulling a straight line to the bottom shelf. There should be two inches space.

In a wood maker studio, table saw is the heart of the place. Since putting permanent table in the middle of the room would cut more free spaces, hiding the table saw inside a cabinet seems like a good idea. Once the cutting job done, the carpenter only needs to fold it back. Simple and easy!
