I built this a few years ago. It was basically an excuse to try and build something round. It’s built with scraps and cutoffs like all my shop cabinets, but it has served me well.

I think it looks cool and I now need a reason to make something other than myself round.

Very nice.

I would need one with the round part was opposite, to make room for my stommack.

LOL at Knappen… ME TOO!

Do you have some sort of funnel in the back to direct the dust into the trashcan? Or is the can just under there to throw cutoffs into?
NICE setup by the way.

It’s low enough that the belly shouldn’t get in the way too much. You might not be able to see what angle you’re cutting, but that could be an issue regardless of the design. :-) Maybe it’s time to reinvent the wheel and create a Miter Saw that rotates concavely instead of convexly (or vice versa).

The barrel below is for cutoffs, I haven’t gotten around to tackling dust collection yet. There is plenty of room behind the saw, so I’m thinking a hood of some kind. I’ve seen a couple on this site that would probably work.

Super job on the chop saw station….It should work good for years to come…..Unless you’re like the rest of us, and make changes to the shop, and more and better upgrades…...Woodworkers are never satisfied wth “just one way”....I like to see good, quality furniture, even in a shop…...

What a great saw station may need to borrow your design

Finally uploaded a drawing of the stand to the Sketchup 3D Warehouse. Search Miter Saw, Woodshop, Woodworking or my username (knightrider).
