My Sawbench.
Made of a plywood base, MDF with Oak trim top, and na oak raised fence. I built the base and top in four sections. Mounted my saw and mortising machine where I wanted them. Then built the fence adjustable. Lots of storage underneath. Painted to match the rest of my shop.

Nice long bench, and nice long workshop.I suggest you keep things always in the correct labeled place, doors really keep saw dust out of the tools.I love it.Alistair

Now that’s alot of storage space. Not a bad looking cut off station either. I just finished some cabinets in my shop, your post has me thinking on how to put a chop saw on top since Ive the Kregg miter station kit on the shelf for several months.

Your sawbench looks awesome. That style of sawbench has been on my to do list for a long time. Was thinking of building one from the plans of the New Yankee Workshop.

Very nice, A job well done. I wish I had a setup like you built, love all the storage below the saw. My rig is a 19’ long portable unit that I have to take down when I need it at the jobsite. How are you going to address the dust collection at the miter saw?
