Homemade table saw with built in router and inverted jigsaw 3 in 1

Must read

Hi this is my take on a homemade table saw, router table and inverted jigsaw, I built all 3 into the same table to save on space
I am very pleased with the results and would recommend making one yourself

The table top is 100cm by 80cm, I didn’t use any specific measurements for the box I just built it round the tools. The tools I used are a Black and Decker circular saw KS64, a Bosch router POF 500A, and a Black and Decker jigsaw KS 633E

During the build and filming allot of the cutting gluing and general preparation was done off camera to speed up the video

After learning many lessons over the years, it was time to replace the router table I had in my extension wing. This has a better fence, a better table, a better router and a better lift!

  1. Uses all these expensive tools to build one from scratch thats cheaper to buy then any of the tools he uses to make it…

  2. Hi I basically did the same, i.e. mounting my saw, jigsaw and router on the same table. I also mounted two t-rail guides across the table and an aluminium fence on its longer side. But for the basic idea of mounting all the tools on the same table I must credit you. A (maybe) funny detail. The table I used is the fine 60×35" oak table formerly placed in my living room …

  3. Hi dude, and where did you buy all the electrical accessories? Can you give us the purchase Links? Thanks for the video, it´s really amazing!!!

  4. Hello! congratulations on your work! Excellent! I ask you a question: how do you adapt the riving knife? Thanks!

  5. Big thanks to Kreg for providing the router lift.
    In the next part of this series, the plans will be release. That'll be delayed a little bit as my wife is in hospital recovering from surgery, so shop time is a bit limited

  6. Where did you manage to find the non-kreg branded T Trak? I'm down in Ballarat, and really struggling to find relatively cheap priced Trak for a router table and table saw sled.
    At the moment I've got some thick perspex for my router to bolt on to. But that kreg lift and slot it's amazing. And tempting.

  7. Great to see an Aussie doing a wood working video on You Tube and mention where he shops, looking forward to seeing more of what you do.

  8. I'm making a fence and tried routing the through grooves (slots) on my router table. Not successful and I wasn't that comfortable with it. That's what my gut was telling me, anyway. Good to hear you say this, too. I'm going to retry it using a plunge router instead as I've done in the past. Excellent video.

  9. Hope your wife has recovered Paul. Great video, and equally great instructions that I'll be buying from your website shortly. One question I had though… you have used a very nice layout of T track and Miter Track for your setup that looks perfect to me, but I can't find those intersection pieces anywhere! Where on earth did you find them? Even finding T intersections just for T track has proven difficult, let alone ones that blend Miter and T configurations.

  10. Hey Paul, sorry last question, is there any particular reason you decided to go with the fence design separated from your table saw fence?

  11. Hey Paul, great video. I was curious as to why you decided to change out the table itself? I've currently got a brand new sawstop so I've got a fresh table to work with – should I try to reinforce it like you did here with a torsion box type setup?

  12. After almost 2 years, I decided to make a router table again. This helps a lot. I hope your wife is okay

  13. Hi there awesome router table. I recently built my own router table and made the router plate out of mdf I routed out the space for the plate and it fits nice so I was wondering is it necessary to screw the plate down like you did because my plate is way too thin for any threaded inserts. Thanks.

  14. Another great informative video Paul, and i hope your Wife is ok and gets better soon. Just wondering is there any other brands of router lifts available as these are quite expensive.

  15. Making the cutout match the external corners of the router insert plate was a very good idea. I didn't bother about it because I thought "what harm could it do??". Well…the little holes in the corners around the insert plate are forever catching little chips which stick up and snag on the work piece stopping me dead in my tracks until I clear them out!
