Here are some more shots of my Miter saw counter in progress I have posted this project before. As I go I have more pics. I Still need to make the fence. I hooked up a good quality hose from the saw to a 1 1/2 pvc adapter into a 2 inch elbow to a 3 inch into a 4 inch. The rear dust collection is a 4 inch T with a round to rectangular downspout fitting. I made the rear plate removable in case something got jammed and so I can modify the rectangular opening bigger or smaller. I’m not sure how much suction the saw needs. Also I used Blue mica and some figured maple on the edges just for kicks. There is about a 3/8 inch gap at the back of the removable plate for dust that the hose misses. The Bosch is a great saw. If you are thinking of getting one just use the clamp that comes with it and a zero clearance fence if you are cutting small pieces it likes to throw things.

That thing’s pretty ultimate, that’s for sure. The figured banding is some extra pimp!

Your setup for miter saw setup is almost as big as my whole work area. Looks great.
