Ok, so after too many years cutting on the floor of my shop, I’m finally going to build a bench for my sliding miter saw. Over the years I’ve had a few ideas, but I never sat down and drew out exactly what I wanted, so now I took the time to throw my idea together on sketchup, and after some fine suggestions in the forums I’ve come to this final design. Let me know what you think?
My shop has the perfect spot for this bench, a spot with a recess in the wall at just the right height… I’ve already plumbed the dust collection to this spot. All the dust gates will be below the saw in the opening between the cabinets.
Here is a close up of the port that will sit right blow the saw. I don’t know how well this will work though because the saw throws dust everywhere, but I hope it will work marginally better than blowing dust all over the floor all the time.
