Measuring at 12 feet long this mitre saw cabinet takes up a lot of shop space, so I tried to make it do several things.
First, it is a stand for the mitre saw. It has a drawer below the saw where the sawdust drops. The drawer does not fully close so you can put scraps into the drawer in the front. A piece of plexiglass goes across the top, to contain dust and for safety. The dust box is melamine to allow dust to drop easily.
The portable power tools are stored above, and accessories for the tools (collets, etc) are in the pencil boxes.
General storage is to the left in shoe boxes.
Storage for jigs and more power tools is below.
The fence has a T track on both sides which holds the stop. In the third picture the stop is engaged. It does not hit the top, so sawdust is less likely to build up in front of it. The fourth picture shows it turned allowing 1 1/2 inch boards to go underneath it, if not needed. Very simple to make and the stop works well.
