This is my latest completed project and it is a take-off on a plan in a recent Woodcrafter magazine. I have a small garage space so any ‘shop furniture’ I built needs to be mobile and maximize available space. This stand includes a shell for dust collection, 4” wheels and connects with 4” hose to my Steel City dust collector. This project also gave me the opportunity to continue developingh my ability to make dovetail joints (used PC jig). The finish is just ol’ fashioned linseed oil. So far, it seems to serve its purpose and it is nice not to have to take my saw off a storage shelf and set it up every time I use it.

Thanks for all the nice comments. The extension supports are a collapsible 12’ shelf hinges. I picked up a pair at a woodworking store in Portland (Woodcrafters). I only used one on each wing and in order to ensure a strong and snug fit when elevated, I put a coved hardwood ‘knee’ on each side of the hinge. Works OK so far. I also built the unit with dimensions that will allow me to store a Rigid Oscillating Spindle Sander when I get one (HELLO SANTA!)

Nice. I have been wanting to make one but just haven’t gotten around to it. I like the drawers and support extensions. Great job.

So all craftman saws scatter the wood chips, I like the chip attachment idea, my craftsman gets only about a 1/4 of the chips in the bag. And I need to make a new miter stand. I have my 12” slider on my 10” stand.
that’s a favorite!!!
