I finally finished the fence on my miter saw station. The removable fence goes out to just over 60”. It also has a build in extension that goes out to about 8ft. the saw blade is exactly 16” from the end of the fence. There is a short piece attachment for the fence that can be set down to almost zero. Since the saw is mounted with the portable miter saw stand brackets, I made 4 blocks to hold the unit in place. With the stops, it is amazinly accurate and repeatable cut are sweet.

I used the plans from ShopNotes #82. I think it is also available from PlansNow. I made it exactly to the plans. The cabinet is bigbox oak plywood. the surface is a cut from a 7’ solid core door someone gave me. The track is made from maple left over from another project. All the hardware was from Rockler.

It works great. Repeat cuts are the best feature. Set it and forget it.

Very nice! Been planning to build something similar when I set up my new shop, but hadn’t thought about making the fence extendable. I’ll look for those plans.

Have your say...
