A table saw stand is a mount for a circular saw that has a belt or gears and is electrically driven. A table saw stand will be a good addition to your workshop and will help you work more easily. You can learn how to build a table saw stand yourself in the following article.

Step 1 – Cut the Frame

Take the 2×4, 8 feet long board and cut it into 2 pieces of 4 feet. You will need this for the frame.

Step 2 – Cut 3 Foot Pieces

Use the other 2×4, 6 feet long board and cut it into 2 pieces of 3.9 feet each.

Step 3 – Cut Legs for the Table

Use the other 4×4 board and cut four 3 feet pieces. These will be for the legs of the table.

Step 4 – Build the Frame

Use the 4 pieces of the 2×4 plywood board as the stand. Place the two boards parallel, 4 feet from each other and insert the 9 inch board between it to form a square frame measuring 4 feet.

Step 5 – Fix the Frame Together

Use the 2 ½ inch screws and attach the frame by driving them through the ends of the 4 feet board into the smaller board.

Step 6 – Fix the Top

Take the square plywood and place it on top of the frame. Use the 1 ½ inch screws to fix it to the frame. Drive the screws in every 6 inches right around the frame’s edge.

Step 7 – The Legs

Take the pieces of wood you cut in step 3 and attach it to the frame.

Step 8 – Fix the Legs Securely

Place a 4×4, 3 foot piece of board against the inside corner of the frame; use the 2 ½ inch screws to secure the leg to the frame. You must use 2 screws on either side of the frame.

Step 9 – Fix All the Legs

Use the same method to fix all the legs to the frame. Make sure you use 2 screws on each side where the leg touches the frame. This will give you a sturdy table that will not shake while you are using it.

Step 10 – Set the Table Upright

Now that you have fixed the legs you can set the table upright and check its sturdiness.

Step 11 – Reinforcement

Use the 1 ½ inch screws and drive in two of each into each corner of the table top. As these screws go down into the legs of the table from the top, they help make the table sturdy and strong enough for any kind of job you may have.

Step 12 – Finishing Touches

Take a piece of sand paper and smooth the places where you cut the wood to have a nice clean finish.
