A standard miter saw comes with a small extension table that helps support the work piece you’re cutting, the problem is it doesn’t have a fence. And the fence that comes with your miter saw is only about 13’’ long on both sides, and that is difficult to keep a long work piece tight against the fence. So I made a extension table and made a longer fence to support long work pieces. And I also wanted to make a drawer to hold screws, and brad nails for my brad Nailer. It’s made out of 3/4’’ plywood and I used pocket screws and glue to hold everything together. And later on the table piece wasn’t wide enough, so I just used pocket screws and screwed on a piece of 3/4’’ melamine about 8’’ wide. I cut a piece of 1’’ thick walnut that is about 2’’ long for a drawer pull, and glued it on to the drawer. I mitered the corners of the extension table just to cut off the sharp corners.
Thanks for reading!
