This is an improvement on my old miter saw station for a new green friend that came into my shop last week. On the old one I found That it was difficult to get the support arms at the right I wanted them every time I took them down and put them back up, and that they would have too much “play in them back and forth. Then I thought to myself; how much do I actually take the arms down? Not very… why not improve on the old. So I kept the main cabinet that the saw sits on, the fence and stop system and ditched the rest. I built two new cabinets to go on either side of the main one and then put the fence system on those, add a few doors, a couple drawers and some more casters for extra support and there we go, a new… well half new miter saw stand. This is a lot more sturdy and precise set up than the last one… and plus with the doors on the cabinets it hides all the clutter that somehow built up underneath the last one.
