Miter Saw Bench and Storage

I recently completed a Miter Saw Bench to add some storage to the shop. The cabinets are constructed out of the 3/4” ply from Home Depot. I think they were around $24.99 a sheet. The full extension drawer slides are really nice. This may have a big foot print, but it adds a ton of storage.

Thanks for looking,
John

Hey Bob,

Yep, and they are all full except for two of the smaller ones. Which I am sure will fill up soon enough.

Thanks!
John

Great looking miter saw workstation. All of your storage is well designed. Have you looked into adding aKreg miter saw track to it? I added one to my miter station and the accurach and repeatability is excellent

Hey John:
Great build there. I like the saw placement right under the window. I’m still trying to figure out what to do with my miter saw, on a 2×8 between two milk cases is getting hard on my knees.
