It is done and works! I needed this badly and was always afraid to build it, just did not think I could build it with my current skill set. Well it turned out well and works like a charm and now I wish I had used better materials instead of all of my scraps etc. It has some white oak, red oak, maple ply, birch ply, walnut and cherry so I cover the forest well I would say. I think I am going to paint it to make it more attractive.

This is just wonderful, you have grown! Your abilities are bigger than you think, så now it’s time to expand your thinking.
I congratulate you on this little journy in your mind, where you won, now you know you are skilled.
And it’s a nice mitre saw stand, really cool, so no need to change on that, now it’s time to enjoy it.
Best thoughts,

Duane, this is a nice addition to your shop. This cart looks to be well planned and you put quite a number of extras in it that make it a pleasure to use. This is a tool that any of us would enjoy having in our shop.

This is a nice cart. If I could easily load it and unload it, this is closer to what I really wanted for mine, but taking it to a jobsite is much harder. Maybe I’ll do something like this for at home.

Great job, by the way.

It looks great just the way it is. Besides, all you’re gonna do is keep touching up the chipped paint.

Great CMS bench, thanks for the detail on the wings and stops. I need those on mine, cut a bunch of pine stock to length today, and those would have saved much time.
I agree, this is too nice to deserve paint!

Duane, like eveyone else has said, it looks great and the fact that you made it and didnt think you could, makes it that much better. Also have to say it, DONT PAINT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!

Put a coat of poly on it and be done. Don’t cover that beautiful wood!
