So, I'm thinking of pulling the rear seats from my D90, so to put a platform for fridge & stuff and couple of drawers to store more stuff.

I'm planning to DIY the drawers...and know my circ saw isn't best for this job.

So, I was wonder if a member has a table saw I can stop by to make some cuts, cut the dado, etc. 

 

I figured I ask here first, before going to CL to find myself table saw. :) 

Thanks!

Sorry, I've actually been thinking of picking one up to build some cabinets but figure I'd use it so little it asnt worth the space.

I just free handed it with my circ saw. Worked fine. I didn't make drawers though, just a cubby and a deck and covered them in the fairly indestructible recycled plastic carpets. 1252b9ae42e0b4c3a8d277d3e1c55a38.jpgca49308be8f9df6371da8171fa1df01e.jpg

Thanks, Tom! For mere mortals like us... hopefully your table saw will help us get close to the precision* and tolerance Chris has set the bar for! 

One can always hope, right? ;)

And I may take a page out of Chris' playbook to start, and just start with a platform across... and find plastic bins to slot underneath. 

 

@Chris, I'm on the fence about fridge placement, slider vs. not (like you). If you had to do it again, would you consider sliders for your fridge setup - just to make it easier to access?

I looked at sliders and Bill Wester built a slide out platform for on top of his drawers and his fridge fits there. I'm 6'2" and can't really see into my fridge but I can remove the baskets and get what I need. The hard part is what to do with the wheel wells. The door is smaller than the tub so it's hard to get into the corners. There is a gullwing replacement for the rear windows which allows for better access to these areas. It's pretty pricey ($550-$650 from Frontrunner) but I may go this route. The platform across the tub does help maximize the width of the tub. For my set up with cots and chairs it makes it easy to load and unload these items without having to unload the whole truck. We can brainstorm ideas for sure. Also, my tolerances are horrible but covered the gaps with carpet

I'm trying to avoid drilling (more) holes in the tub... and I am not comfortable mounting a fridge on piece of plywood without securing it to the tub floor 

So, my thinking is to take out the seats and reuse the seat mount hole to secure the plywood as the platform. Then secure the fridge on that.

 

If I put slider on it, I'll have much easier time getting into the fridge, standing on bumper or step stool.

And a baller would throw in a drop-down fridge slide. But I'm not, so a regular slide & step stool from amazon will do just fine.

Actually, it's a Miter saw. Sorry. I had to double check it this morning.
