I wanted a support for my benchtop bandsaw and have been mulling the idea of making one until I came across this. For $28 it was a great deal from Harbor Freight. It is adjustable height but is a bit short for me for most things (Im 6’4”), b ut for my bandsaw I thought it would be perfect.
It came with middle and bottom shelving material that was very flimsy hardboard, I’m talking so thin the box was stronger. I made new shelves out of some 3/4” particle board. The top that it came with is perfectly fine. The stand went together fairly easly but took longer than I expected to put together. It turns out this little stand is very sturdy and did not flex under my 300 lbs.
I bolted my bandsaw to the top, there is storage for extra blades, the fence, and a circle making jig once I get it completed.
It might make a fine drill press or miter saw stand too depending on how high you want it, but for the miter saw its too low for me.
