For greater convenience, a hand-held circular saw can be mounted on a table. This design will help you quickly and easily process and saw wood parts.
Working with a circular saw mounted on a special table greatly simplifies the sawing process and is safe when using special tools.
In this article, we will tell you how to make a table for a manual circular saw with your own hands.
Circular saw table design
The base of the circular saw table can be wooden or metal.
The table top is made of metal or sheet wood materials. It makes a hole under the circular saw blade.
On the guides in the countertop ride the supports that move the beam and any other sawing material.
First of all, the table should be comfortable, stable (do not stagger!), The surface of the countertop should be flat. These factors will help a person avoid injury during work.
The hole in the base is cut to a specific brand of saw
Before starting the cutting of the material and the assembly of the circular table, it is necessary to calculate its dimensions and make a drawing.
The hole in the base must match the size of the circular saw pad. For each brand of saw it will be a certain size.
The plate installed on the countertop should not outweigh the table in one direction. the base should be resistant to external mechanical stresses.
The dimensions of the countertop should correspond to the sawing flow.
Someone needs a folding table, a small table with a removable circular saw. People who have a spacious workshop, need a full table for a circular saw or even a circular machine.
- solid wood;
- Chipboard, chipboard, MDF, OSB, plywood;
- metal (steel or aluminum).
Plastic is poorly suited as a material for making a saw table.
Prior to final assembly, all wooden parts of the table should be treated with antiseptic compounds to protect against moisture and decay.

Step 1. To begin with, we trim all sides of the timber with a planer. We assemble the table frame from the bar: on each side of the countertop we drill two holes of 5 mm for dowels for each drawer and one hole for each table leg.
Step 2 In the drawers, two holes (5 mm) must be made, and in the legs one at a time (5 mm).
Step 3 We install dowels in the countertop, after having greased them with carpentry glue. The tsars and legs are installed on top.
If there are clamps with ties, you can fix the table with them. After the glue has completely dried, the drawers are fastened with legs and with each other with special metal mounts for tables and are pulled together with self-tapping screws.
Step 5 You can fix the saw with bolts or bars with self-tapping screws. We will fasten the bars, so in small bars we make a drink the width of the saw pad. With bars with self-tapping screws on both sides we fasten a circular saw with a countertop.
Step 6 When the saw is installed, take another bigger bar and screw it to the countertop using screws (directly to the points noted above, on which the saw platform was set exactly). This bar is necessary so that in the future, when removing the saw from the table, you can quickly return it to its place without resorting to marking.
Step 7 We put the circular saw blade in place and saw the countertop to get a longitudinal hole. Turn the countertop over.
Step 8 We make a parallel emphasis. To do this, saw off two plywood strips with a length equal to the width of the table and a width of about 8-10 cm. We round the corners with a protractor and a pencil.
Step 9 We grind both strips and fasten with the help of screws at an angle. Inside we fasten a metal corner.
Step 10 With constant work with the table for the circular saw and the need to fix the emphasis on the countertop, a guide is fixed perpendicular to the disk. The roller or the second part of the guide is mounted on the lower part of the stop so that the stop can move in / out of the circular saw blade.

In order not to be injured during work, it is necessary to carefully monitor the position of the saw table, its stability, strength.
Before each turning on of the circular saw, you need to check whether it is well fixed in place.
It is strictly forbidden to hold the material by hand! This can result in personal injury to the fingers or a tree bouncing in the face if knots or bumps are caught.
Also, to avoid eye injury during work, be sure to wear safety glasses.
Do not neglect these simple rules, take care of your own health.
