Like my profile says, everything in my shop needs to be compact. So I took ideas from several different projects I had seen and came up with this folding miter saw table. It has two wings that fold down to the sides. Each wing has a Kreg track mounted on the top for precise, no measuring needed, repeatable cuts.
There is built-in dust collection (notice the cool, lighted green button on the top surface) which does a decent job using a 5HP shop vac below. And there’s still room for a bit of storage underneath as well. And since I was running electrical to this table, I added an additional outlet on the side. You’ll need to make sure the power cord, outlets, etc. can all handle the expected load. And don’t forget to provide some ventilation on the back for the shop vac. The first time I turned it on it blew the doors open…hilarious.
The whole thing is on locking casters so I can push it out of the way when it’s not needed.
