I wanted a basic workbench that I didn’t have to spend too much on, but knew how I wanted the top. After looking at different ideas for bases I had an idea… miter saw stand. Saved quite of money and time with having to build a stand and it’s way more stable than any base I could have built. I can also move it a lot easier, if I have to. I still have to finish make the vise jaws and router the edges, but I think it’s going to work out well.

Nice – short, sweet, simple and it doesn’t take up the entire shop.

I just bought two more 6” bar clamps at Harbor Freight, removed the heads, leaving just the bar and the threaded portion, and it works great in the holes of a WorkMate and my jig table.
