Miter saw extension table with a drawer

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!

Looks pretty nice there kid!

You can always attach folding end sections if you ever want more room on the sides…

Looks cool!

What kind of miter saw is that?

Never did notice what kind you ended up with…

Thank you.

Your right AJ! A 13” fence is just way to short. Too easy for your work to move off the mark!
Glad you got that under control! Good job!
