I recently posted a photo of a sanding storage cabinet. I received such nice remarked that I thought I’d post the miter stand I just finished today. It’s on wheels so I can move it around the shop. I use this saw all the time and love it except for the dust. I’ve tried a bunch of different things for the dust, a box built behind it, a hole built under it (I also tried this behind it) with the dust collection system hooks up to it. It would be much easier to deal with the dust if it didn’t have slider. I ended up with a 2-1/2” hose attached to the dust port leading to a 4” connector to my dust collection system. All the drawers have full extension slides and are lined with flet. It’s from Birch Plywood with two coats of clear poly gel on it.

I mentioned in my other posting that I’ve put instructions for this and other things on my web site. I finished the instructions for this project up to point of installing the drawers and making the fence stop. I’ll get the rest up soon. I have one more project to finish, a saw cabinet that will go under my table saw, then I’m finally going to make something fun.

My web site is “” I don’t have any ads on my website. It’s was started just to help other woodworkers since I’ve received so much from others.

Very nice job. Compact, fully expendable, and lots of storage. Great project. I like it, so it’s in my favorites. Thanks for uploading.

Very nice work station. I like the design with the collapsible extensions. Like your Bosch too. I have always been fond of their MS.

Great job!! This is a project I am getting ready to start, I was looking at the back issue of
Fine Woodworking last night – your right, poorly written article. Thanks for posting. Just purchased a 10” Makita sliding miter saw yesterday.

Great work. Like the folding wings and tracks. The extra storage is always nice.

Never pass up the chance to put drawers in shop furniture – you never have enough. Nice piece!

Nice! If it is OK, I saved your website in Favorites for future reference. I’m setting up a shop and I like the idea of saving floor space.
