Up until very recently, I’ve had to do my woodworking outside. When it came time to build my shop, I knew I’d have to have a good stand to hold up my miter saw. Here’s what I came up with. It is based loosely on the Ulltimate Tool Stand’s clamping top originally published in American Woodworker. The materials are simply 3/4 Borg plywood, cut to match the height of my saw when mounted on a plywood base. Incidentally, somewhere on the net the Ultimate tool stand plan is still available in pdf format.
I can also use this as a clamping station, using f-clamps in the slots. There was a fence made for it, but it warped, so it became precision scrap in a hurry.
Nothing fancy on the legs, in fact I’m thinking about removing them altogether and building a small UTS workstation, with that as the top. I would have to rout out a hole in the bottom to allow for router and dust collection, but that would be very simple to do.
incidentally, the sawdust in the main shot is the First sawdust in the shop since it got closed in!
