A small benchtop table saw is perfect for a garage or small shop, but it still takes up a considerable amount of space when it's not being used. Our Drop-Down Table Saw Cabinet design solves the problem with a compact storage space that keeps your saw neatly tucked away in an enclosed cabinet.
Don't worry—lifting the the saw into the cabinet is easy, thanks to the heavy duty springs you'll attach to the platform (see photo at left). Once the saw is up and into the cabinet, simply lock the platform in place and shut the cabinet door.
Bonus Plans: Wall-Mounted Workstation
This plan includes instructions for building a companion workbench and upper cabinet (see below). You can build any or all of the components as you like to create your own unique workstation.
