Im on a budget that is shorter than me (5’6” btw). Any time I can find a way to recycle anything of structural value I will. I see so many nice miter saw stations on here that probably cost more than most of my projects. Dont get me wrong here, I would love to have a nice dedicated station but frankly I cannot afford to put much into my shop. So here’s what I did. I found a free dresser that would have otherwise been trashed, spent $6 on some casters and called it a night. Some of you may know that I make quite a few benches so I screwed a sacrificial 2×4 to the fence of my sliding miter saw (wonderful gift from my wife by the way) with all my common bench sizes marked out. Clamp a speed square where needed and repeatable cuts are no problem. If it still has structural strength and its free…get it!
