If you are like me and do a lot of home renovations you might like to see what I came up with. You can make it any length you need by changing the 2×4’s. I used left over scraps to make three “t” shaped supports that fit into the opening between the 2×4’s. Each “t” is made up of two 3/4” plywood and three short 2×4’s. The red (so I won’t use them to make something else) 2×4’s help keep the ends aligned. Eight glue clamps, two saw horses, and a miter saw make a work station. This is my first attempt at showing a project so it may not look a great as the ones I have been reading about.

This is a very practical project. The fence and table support that come with miter saws simply aren’t enough unless you only are cutting small pieces. This is a nice solution to the problem. Plus it has the advantage of portability.

Nice work.

Easy build but very functional.
