Here’s my attempt at Norm’s chop saw stand. I was seriously looking at the HTC saw stand, but at $225 I was not in a big hurry to purchase. I figured this way might work out better anyway since it would give me a nice sturdy stand for the shop with a 90 deg fence and still be somewhat portable if I need to travel with it. I built this with two 2×4’s and a sheet of 3/4” birch ply, so I probably have about $50 in this thing. I’m going to use rare earth magnets to lock my extension wings in there extended and stowed positions. I trimmed with some walnut strips and finished with two coats of poly.

Very nice work. I have tried to think of ways to add the table to my Ryobi stand. So far, nothing. I may have to just stow the bought stand away and build one like this.
