I am doing some remodeling/ reorganizing in my garage which doubles as my workshop. No cars are allowed! And haven’t been for the past 25 years.
I have an area about 8 foot long along one wall that I hope to build a miter saw station which will incorporate other tools as well to maximize storage and provide a place for other tools also.
My question is – do you see any problem with opening up a portion of the wall directly behind the miter saw and creating a shallow (3 inch) recess to give the saw more room to work? The wall is insulated and a bedroom is on the other side. I am only talking about making the recess wide enough to clear the saw when cutting at 45 deg both ways and maybe a 16 inches high. Actually 16×16 would probably be more than enough. No change necessary to the interior wall.
That extra 3 inches would certainly help. I wouldn’t have to build the cabinets as deep which would allow more room to move around.
Here is a pic of the area where the miter saw station is going to be built.
Your thoughts appreciated.
Note: I have done this before in a bathroom. This is what I am proposing to do.
