I finally made the miter saw station that I so desperately needed. I combined plans from two projects – the miter saw station from Plans.Now and the Ultimate Miter Saw Stand from Woodworker’s Journal. I included the sliding base for the saw so that I can line it up with the fence with or without a sacrificial zero clearance fence on the saw. I am also going to put a dedicated vacuum in the lower compartment instead of a scrap bin. This should be a great addition to my workshop!

great project! I’m just in the process of making a bunch of rolling carts for “my” shop. I say “my” because its actually my brother-in-law’s shop, but he never uses it….so i’m taking over. :)

That is one cool Miter saw station. I really like the folding aspect for the smaller shop. good use of valuable space.
Thanks for sharing.

You chose the Kreg stop-block set up which I have considered as well. I haven’t been able to figure out why there are the two separate stops? If you chose only one, which one would you choose? I have made a couple of versions of this sort of set up but have not yet found one that I really like. Now it’s probably time to try this one. Looks great!

The two different types of stops allow you to set two lengths and then flip one out of the way for cutting the longer cuts. If I had to limit to one then I would get the flip stop. Good luck building this project. It was a very easy build.

AHHH now I see. Of course I would get the flip stop. I do a lot of repetitive cuts but there are lots of misc. cuts mixed in. Thanks for pointing this out.
