Most of us with small workshops usually end up with a benchtop table saw. It’s not that we wouldn’t want one of those stationary cabinet-style table saws with surface area galore that makes ripping plywood a breeze. Oh yes, we definitely want one, but because of the size of our shops, they simply won’t fit. But there is a way to create more workspace on our benchtop table saws. We can DIY a table saw station that will virtually turn our benchtop saws into a cabinet saw. Today we’ll look at 7 DIY Table Saw Stations perfect for a Small Workshop.

In our series on setting up a small workshop, we have looked at space-saving workbenches, space-saving miter saw stands, space-saving scrap wood storage, and space-saving clamp storage. We’ve even looked at “how to put your saws on skates” or how to make your tools mobile to maximize floor space in a small workshop. In this roundup of 7 DIY Table Saw Stations for a Small Workshop, we’ll look at how to put your benchtop table saw on skates!
All of the table saw station projects were chosen because they increase the surface area of a benchtop table saw and because they’re mobile and offer storage. Small workshop furniture needs to multitask, and these projects deliver. We’ll start our look at table saw stations with the smallest options and end with larger options for bigger workshops.
