When I upgraded to a new Miter Saw I thought I should make a new home for it too. I saw a great build here on LJ by Brad posted 11/8/15, (see http://fixthisbuildthat.com/mobile-miter-saw-station/, and thought I’d modify it to meet my needs. His plan is spec’d for a Rigid saw with a vacuum mounted inside the cabinet.
I used the basic plans and happily went with the adjustable fences (vs fixed) as I think it would be tough to get the fences square to your saw without some adjustment. I hooked my new saw up to my DCS with a rubber plumbing fitting which worked out well. The new DeWalt DWS780 greatly out-performs my prior saw (DeWalt 708) in dust collection. I also added the doors on the bottom and a drawer up top with adjustable dividers. The doors are mortise and tenon joined. The Kreg Top Traks with tape measures and stops are a great add-on.
I am very happy with this new work station. I am able to easily handle long boards using the tapes and stops for accurate cuts. And, the fold-down wings maximize shop space. Love it!
Thanks for looking!!
