I recently built this miter saw table, it seems that when I wanted to use my saw I either had to lift it up to a bench (since I didn’t have room to mount it to my bench) or use it on the floor. It is a sturdy table made out of plywood 1 1/2” thick 18”wide x 8’ long and for extra support I installed a 1 1/2” x 1 1/2” x 6’ angle Iron on the under side. I have a “T” track that runs the full length so that the saw can be moved along the length of the table. I also made two supports that also run in the “T” slots for support of the material I wish to cut. The legs are also adjustable and if necessary can be removed from the table and could be used for support when cutting extra wide material on the table saw or for another set saw horses.

I enjoy have this table it has saved my back a number of times!!

Thanks for looking and all comments are welcome.

I can relate very well to working on the floor with a miter saw. This will be a big help, no doubt. One thing you might want to consider is making it so you have an adjustable stop, especially on the left side of the blade for making repetitive cuts. I have this feature on my miter saw table and use it constantly for cutting consistent lengths of materials. If you are coming to Florida this winter I hope you will consider an LJs meeting. I’d love that!

Looks good and you have every position covered with the tee track.

I guess you will be wondering why you worked off the floor for so long.

Nice project Chuck. I like that you have a nice cutting station and it can still be portable. I like the sliding supports.

Nice table , Chuck. One suggestion that I find real handy is a stop on the left table so you can make repeat cuts of the same length!!.............Jim
