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,

Hey Bob,

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

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.
