I recently upgraded my miter table to make an all-purpose cutting station. Here is a budget-friendly cutting station with the following:
Used 10-inch Ridgid compound miter saw from craigslist: $75
Used 12-inch Craftsman radial arm saw from craigslist: $50
New Kreg Precision Trak with stop from Amazon: $100
New 12-inch Freud Diablo blade for RAS from Amazon: $35
Wood, glue, and screws: approx $25
Time to build, approximately 4-5 hours.
For $285 this is a solid, easy to build cutting station that allows you to make just about any cut, including dados and compound miters. It won’t win any workbench awards, but it’s very sturdy and I’m pleased with the usability of the bench. It’s approximately 11 feet long.
