I got this miter saw as a wedding gift. As we are coming up on my five year anniversary, I thought it might be appropriate to build an appropriate bench for it. I got the design from Woodsmith Tools and Jigs. This was a fun way to learn some new techniques. Drilling for shelves. Mounting a cabinet. Using a piano hinge. Making two independent cabinets with a rotating fence perfectly square with each other.
Dust removal for this machine sucks. I am trying to figure out what kind of system to install behind it. It is a beast, 12” compound miter saw. The original plan had it sliding back to get it out of the way. That won’t work because of its size, so it is fixed in place.
Now I will be able to clear some space in my shop and load up the shelves.
