Finally finished this stand tonight. Like most of my projects I finished about 90% of it then ran out of motivation. I made it based on some plans from FWW. The wings fold in for room in my very small shop. Eventually, I’d love to attach a track and measuring system to the fence, eg. the Kreg Trac. I came up with the dust collection system after seeing what some of the other LJ members have done. As you can see from the pics, I attached the “Big Red” dust hood from PCI to a wooden bracket that slides along a bar at the back of the stand. This allows me to be able to pivot the hood when I cut mitres. Overall it sucks up about 70% of the sawdust, which is not ideal, but is 70% better than what I had before. As usual, I’ve made it out of 3/4” Baltic birch plywood, with exception of the fence which is MDF.

That is a wonderful addition to your shop and it will save you a lot of time and also give you much pleasure while using it. Great work.

Awesome job. I had considered building something similar but knowing that I have a tendency to get a bit lazy I knew I wouldn’t want to raise the wings up.

Without going into a lot of dry, boring details, let’s just leave it at … I like every single thing about it.

I’m loving your miter saw cart. Is it possible to get that cut diagram?
