As you can see by the pic, I am undergoing some shop setup. I recently upgraded to a SCMS and am just now getting around to building a bench/station along this long wall. Based on my measurement I would need a minimum 30inch deep workbench for this to make sense. I want to make the saw same height as the bench too. Probably going to leave around 7 feet to the left of the blade. i do plan to put a small corded flourescent under those cabinets too. my saw really makes a lot of dust with an 80 tooth blade so i may need a little room in the back for a hood or box. Any ideas/tips/do’s or don’ts would be welcome.

I built to the same concept for my RAS. It sits between cabinets built to the same level. The cabinet to the left extends 12 feet and the one to the right about 6 feet. Very convenient for cutting long stock.

check out this month’s issue of shopnotes (if it’s not in there, then it’s in woodsmith). there are plans for a miter saw station that would be ideal for your application.
