I am looking to set up a miter saw station. I have seen the workbench thread and the handplane thread. Is there a miter saw station thread? I did a search but didnt really come up with anything. If there is such a thread could someone please point me in the right direction. If there isnt one….lets go people start one up so us rookies can steal everyones ideas.

Here is my shot at a miter station. So far it has worked extremely well for me. Let me know if you would like some more details.

The Miter saw, stock length prep. area consists of two miter saws. One is a standard 12” chop saw and the other is a sliding miter saw. Both are mounted on sliding platforms which allows more flexibility in their use. Fences and stops are basic T-Trak components allowing flexibility and adjustments to be made for stock lengths of up to 18 feet. The retractable supports were installed on the front edge of the base cabinets for stabilizing wide stock and were fabricated from basic retractable shelf support hardware.

fold up as space is limited for me, there are lots of nice ones on here. I have not added my permanent stop blocks yet.
