I purchased a miter saw this week for working on the garage workbench (workbench V0.0) described in my shop blog… And of course a miter saw needs an appropriate stand.
I picked up a cheap desk from the local charity store, and bolted the saw to it. To support the workpiece I built a feed rail (table) from 1×4 with spacers cut from 2×4 scrap. I clamped a level to the fence, and use it to align the feed rail with the saw, the bolted the rail down.
The second picture shows an improvised stop/alignment block that lets me drop rough cut workpieces right into place, clamp them down, and then trim them to their final length.
