Sawdust-collection drawer keeps the shop clean

When I used my table saw in the garage or in the house, it was always quite messy since the sawdust got thrown all around. So, I mounted the saw on a two-drawer file cabinet. I cut a slot in the top under the blade. Now, the sawdust drops into the drawer for easy removal. Attached wheels under the back side, making it easy to move around.
