These are shots of my mostly completed miter bench. It has a tempered hard board top and is edged with poplar. The out feed table has a left to right tape measure and uses the shop made stop that is shown in the picture. I am still planning on adding two shallow drawers on each side, one above the roll around cabinet and one over the fridge. These will hold drafting supplies and hardware. I also am planning on building a hood for the miter saw to help with the dust collection when I find the time.

I’m jealous already…wishing that I had that much wall space to dedicate to a miter saw and also very nice that you have the radial all worked into your project as well : )

This is great! I wish I had room for one.

By the way, I’m thinking that watching that TV while you use that saw probably would not be a very good idea. <g>

Yeah, Looks familiar. I have one like it in my shop. I had to make a few changes to make it work with my miter saw. That Norm is a pretty smart fella. I really like the stop. It looks like a real improvemet over a wooden one.

Did you make the stop yourself? I am using you beautiful bench as inspiration for one of my own. Your stop is great could you post some photos of how it is constucted?
