I have been a member of lumberjocks for about two years now and have never posted any of my projects. I am currently working on turning my basement into a playroom and office space. The miter saw station is made like the one from an episode of DIY network’s Tools and Techniques. The episode shows a really cool trick using a combination square to get the exact height of the saw base. I used my Kreg Jig to join all of the plywood together. It is made from 3/4 birch plywood. It is actually not that heavy to move with my saw mounted. I have been using it on the floor, but it is great up on my saw horses.
The last two pictures are of the straight edge ripping guide I made for my Ridgid circle saw. It is from a Wood magazine on line video. Nothing fancy, just some 1/2 inch hardboard. I was worried that it may be flimsy, but it is actually very sturdy. I plan on making a few more with the remainder of the hardboard for my different blades. I also followed Wood’s tip about writing the name of the saw and the blade on the base. I try to live my life by the KISS principle. Sometimes it works, most of the time it doesn’t.
