« Part 6: Torsion Box Bench Tops Part 7 of New Yankee Miter Bench Vs. Utimate Tool Stand series no next part

Built and installed the platform for my Miter Saw today:

Similar to my bench tops, the platform is a torsion box, made of 3/4 plywood tops, bottoms, and grid work. The grid work is 2 3/4” wide and attached to the top piece with glue and pocket hole screws. The bottom is face screwed to the grid. I also installed 1” X 1/8” steel strips to the bottom to provide support for the levelers:

The levelers are installed on the cabinets to allow for various platforms to be leveled:

Next up, the extended fences for my miter saw.

Thanks for reading.

That looks like a good system. Sure beats the factory stock supports on my miter saw.
