Having my shop in the basement (and we have no garage at all) means at least some of my space gets shared. This bench is primarily for auto or house repair type projects. My woodworking benches are just behind me as I took these pics. I’ve really been wanting a real miter station, but just couldn’t see how I could spare the space until I came up with this. By using a pair of rails, I get a miter station that essentially takes up no space. When the saw is needed, it sits upright on the lower rail. The height, of course, is set so the top of the saw is level with the top of the bench. When the bench is needed for another project, the saw slides out, flips over, and sits on the upper rail, giving me back all of my bench space (and giving a handy storage spot for the saw). It’s not complicated, but I think it’s pretty slick.
