I finally got my miter saw counter done the other day. The frame work is made of 2 X 4’s and a 2 X 6 on the back of the frames. I used my Kreg screw jig and glued the frames together. It might have been a little over kill but I ran 2 lag bolts in each stud. Then I used 4 metal frames to help keep the frames from moving. The tops are 3/4” fir plywood and covered with laminate. All the exposed edges are covered with 4/4 red oak. I used Kreg’s top track, tape, flip stop and production stop. The miter saw is hooked to my cyclone system with a 2 1/2” hose and a 4” flexform hose from Rockler. I made a bracket to hold the flexform hose in place. By using both these there is very little dust lost.
