This is the Miter saw station I made for my Ridgid 12 in sliding compound Miter Saw . I got the plans from shopnotes. Don’t remember the issue offhand. I made a few adjustments to make it deeper, the saw it was designed for was a 10 in non-sliding type miter saw, to fit the saw and so I could use the deeper cabinet to store stuff I don’t use as often. Besides I needed some storage till I make some more cabinets. Just waiting for the economy to ease up a bit so I get some of my discretionary funds back. I used 3/4 birch ply for the carcass and the top, it’s all trimmed in poplar and the face frame is poplar also, hardwood isn’t in the budget atm besides it was free:-). The kick panel and rear brace for the main cabinet is a 2×6 front and rear for strength then i put a pc of poplar over th 2×6 for asthetics. The right side panel is 2 pcs of 3/4 birch I glued and screwed together. THe shelves are also 3/4 birch ply I faced in … you guessed it … Poplar. I used heavy duty shelf pins, they look like an L bracket with a pin on them, to hold the shelves up. and got some black stippled Laminate from HD for a durable surface trimmed the top in …. wait for it …....... Poplar. I then gave the whole thing a light Pecan stain to even out the differences between the Birch and Poplar put 3 coats of Spar Urethane on it for durability and my Miter saw and most of my electric and air tools have a home, till I make more cabinets and can spread em out a bit more to make them a little more accesible.
