The table the miter saw sits on is built from new wood, 24” deep, 48” long. The “extension” table on the left is built from scraps and 1×3 and 1×4 furring strips; it’s 60” long. The miter saw is screwed in place, as is the stop fence.
I constructed a stop block that is held in place by a regular clamp for repetitive cuts. I will likely add a dedicated clamping system at some point to the stop block but that’s for later.
Instead of having the saw at a lower level as I have seen in most other miter saw stations, I decided just to make a couple of blocks to keep the material level and hold it up during cuts. I just attached a 1×4 to a 2×4 and that was the perfect height.
This setup allows for easy flexibility should I upgrade my saw at a later time.
Next, I added two drawers for miscellaneous storage. They slide on 1×3 furring strips. No hardware used. The drawers are small and they glide real nice as they are. The pulls are constructed from scrap 2×4’s notched out at the bottom. The drawer faces are made from scrap 1/2” plywood.
I made a simple drawer divider for one of the drawers from some more 1×3 scrap. It’s just set in place, not attached. I can attach it later once I decide if this is the right configuration.
Lastly, there is open storage on the bottom. Doors to follow, or I might put sliding doors on it. Haven’t decided yet.
