I am about to build a new stand for my new saw and my ras I have two ras and will choose to use one of them. in the station. I was leaning towards Norms Bench design to add much needed storage under the saws. But I would like some other Ideas too use with his Base. I am wanting to use a nice fence system and will be using the new Dust hood from Rousseau to catch all the dust this hood has been shop tested for several months and it works great I wish I had 2 of them I want to make the bench long to make sure it will do what I need for large pieces of furniture and case work. All input is welcome. One ting I will have to make sure is the fence riser must be deep as the cut on the slcms because I will be using it to cut bench tops and things like that.

Is your stand going to be mobile or fixed?
My stand is mobile so I made the conscience decision to not have any fence on the extension support wings. I did not feel confident that I could maintain alignment of the saw, the saw’s fence, and the extension wing fence. If you really want a fence, I would suggest that you allow some adjustability in the miter saw placement so you can first align the saw’s fence to the saw blade and then align the entire saw to the stand’s fence.
