I just moved into my new shop and have about twice as much room as I used to. I would like to turn one of my walls into a long bench with a radial arm saw, miter saw, and possibly my mortiser. I would like to have something like what Norm had. I was just wondering if anyone has done something like this in their shop. I would love to see pics and hear ideas on how to go about doing this. Thanks for all of your help, I greatly appreciate it.

I Covered the Base for the RAS with a Door panel from a remodel Cabinet job. Then I Made Drawers to fit.

Check out my workshop photos. I spent a lot of time researching the best way to fit my RAS into a wall length bench and am very happy with the results.

I for one don’t see a need for a RAS & a CMS…

But I like this setup !!!!

I have a long bench mounted to the wall about 12 ft long. The RAS is located at the extreme right and the mitersaw is located about 4 ft to the left of the RAS. They are both set into the bench top so they both use the same top surface and fence. With this setup, I can xcut with the RAS and cut 2×4’s with the miter saw. I have a mortiser that is mounted on a stand. The miter saw is permanently mounted in the bench, but by undoing 4 bolts, it can be removed for on-site jobs. With this setup, I can handle lumber of any length to the left or right of the saw blade.
