This was an old beat up cabinet that was going to be thrown out from a remodel at work. I thought it would be good for my miter saw so I saved it from the sledge. It was in pretty rough shape so I “skinned” it with 1/4” red oak and put a new 1-1/4” thick particle board top, and then more oak on that. I had a little oak ply left from my router table project which I used for the door. I had some scrap oak 1x which I used for the door frame. I also had a little cherry half round left from another project so I used it around the top. I threw on some casters, stained and polyed and that’s it. Inside, there are three shelves, two of which are pullouts.

Great little table!

Love the use of scraps. Little here….Little there….It all adds up to a very fine project.

Keep it up.

This is a nice re-purpose of the cabinet. You saved it from the dumpster and converted it into a nice miter saw stand. It not only provides a good working surface for your saw but also gives some much needed storage space as well.

Nice job.

Thanks guys! Its nice to give something new life. You’re right Scott, it does give much needed storage. I keep my bench grinder, some aluminum scrap from a powered cart modification, among a few other things, stored in the cabinet. Thanks for the comments LJ’s!
