Mitre Saw Stand

I know I’m not the first to use this idea but I really find it very useful. Old gas grills make great stands or shop carts. I found this one with the stainless front piece which makes it very stable. I added two extensions and a lower shelf from the scrap pile. The saw is fastened with wing nuts so it remains portable.

Cool, a great use for an old grill.

That’s cool. I knew I should know what that cart was from before I read you comment. Good use of the frame with wheels. I’ll bet a guy could find them on trash day and make all kinds of things from them when the grill burns out!

Nice!

Ahhh , another well used and repurposed grill . I feel much better now that others have seen the value of old grills…...aka workstations waiting to happen : )

Doh! I threw a grill out this summer, and I need a miter stand. Oh well, I’ll go garbage picking this next summer!

Interesting use of “other people’s trash” concept… Great portability now, eh?!

Last night I was riding my bicycle around my neighborhood and somebody put a barbeque in front of their house with a free sticker on it. Now I know what it would have been good for. Too late, today was garbage day. I’ll wait for the next one.
