    Table saw mod (inside down draft table)

    I built a DIY down draft table 4'X4' with a table saw in it a while back and also a place for me to store my shop vac.

    Got tired of clearing off the table to open the door (lid) every time I want to cut a board.

    Solution:

    1) Removed my table saw from the stock mount and bolted the saw to the underside of the table.

    2) Added a new top Laminated MDF interlocking flooring boards.

    3) Start the saw & raised the blade to max and now have a small 'blade' hole in my table top.

    I use my locking, portable guide to properly set align the wood for cutting.

    Cuts up to a 2x4. and the side access door sucks in most all debris.

    The table is on wheels for larger jobs / location placements and stores my shop Vac.
