This was a project I had been wanting to do for a while now. With a weeks vacation, I was finally able to bang it out. The basic design is based on a plan from The Family Handyman. I modified it a bit to include drawers instead of open gaps as the plan indicated. Overall, I’m very happy with the final product…A much needed addition to the ever evolving shop. Thanks for looking!

That is nice. The drawer idea is great. Wish I had room for something like that.

I have to agree with BurlyBob, that is a great setup, but I too lack the room. Keep up the great work.

I’m getting ready to make one of those myself. Getting tired of tripping over the flared legs on the Miter stand I use now, and could really use the drawer space. Thanks for sharing

I love everything about it. The drawers, the storage underneath… and that fence is way cool! I also like that bin for cutoffs. Very nice! Keep up the good work.

Great work. I really like the drawers under the wings. Have you thought about running a t-track type measuring system to the top of the fence? I did that on mine and I love being able to set a stop when I am cutting multiple pieces the same size (you can check it out under my projects). Makes it incredibly easy. Keep up the good work!

That’s a nice bench with plenty of room for cutting longer pieces when needed and the drawers are a good addition for storage as well. I think if I had the room for it I would also put some drawers on one side of the bottom and leave one side for open storage. Storage is like clamps , you can never have enough.

Thanks for the comments…much appreciated! The bench itself was an existing bench I had built a few years ago. It was situated in the center of my shop, but not an ideal width for assembly etc..I had been wanting to re-purpose it for a long time. @ Richard…you read my mind! I plan to build more shelves for the left underside of the bench. On the right, I am going to cut out the bottom shelving to make space for a small cut off bin and my shop vac..
