That’s a great work stand and storage cabinet! Sometimes we make the function of our shop such a priority that we forget that we can make it look great, too. But you’ve created a cabinet that looks great and will be very useful. I’m planning a miter saw stand for my shop – do you mind if I borrow some ideas from yours? Why did you go with large doors on the side cabinets?

Thanks for the idea! I’m thinking of redoing my workbench area….I might just add that recess for the miter saw.

Guys TY all for taking the time to look at and comment on the cabinet. Peter I decided on large doors for the cabinet because I wanted to be able to store anything I neede under there-so many of the tools i have come in large plastic storage boxes and I wanted that much entry room into the storage areas. This is actually one contiuous cabinet 8feet long. Please feel free to incorporate anything you see into your new cabinet-If you’re interested in under constrution pics let me know and i’ll e-mail you all you want. I even toyed with adding a door to the side so that I could stick items that were eight feet in lenghth if need be! I had some extra 3/4 prefinished oak flooring from a job here at the house that I used for the top!

What a great addition to your shop. Consider adding a good extended fence with adjustable and measured stops for your chopsaw and repeating accurate will be a breeze. Something that nice really makes it enjoyable to be in your shop, doesn’t it? What’s the reason we put nice cabinets in our kitchen? ...Because it looks nice and we enjoy and appreciate aesthetics. Why should it not be that way in our woodshop? We spend a lot of time there doing something we love, it is our personal space to express our creativeness, it may as well be comfortable and aesthetically pleasing as well. Besides, what better a place to practice our skills before we botch up the actual kitchen cabinets, than in our shop? Good job.

A door in one end is a good idea. I’m trying to figure out the stand for my saw. I have the Ridgid 12” slider and the distance from the back of the rails to the front mounting holes is 36”! The table and bevel latch stick out another 8” or so past that. It doesn’t fit well with my 24” cabinet philosophy.
