As I put my new shop together I have a spot picked out along one wall for a miter saw bench. I am thinking it would be nice to set the bench up with an accurate scale to use like the fence on my table saw, maybe something like this one:

Miter saw fence/stop

Or a homemade version a T track and slide?

I plan to keep my old saw on its portable stand for doing work outside of the shop so my new miter saw bench would be built-in. What have you found while building your miter saw station that you like to use? Dimensions? What do you like or dislike about your current set-up? Would you do anything different when you build the next one?

I found this one here at LJ http://lumberjocks.com/projects/8227

It looks to be very well done.

This looks like a good setup by Kreg:

built a 14 ft miter saw workstation and used the Kreg system. I have been extremely satisfied with it. Miter saws throw a lot of dust around and it is important to be able to contain it. The best addition to it was adding a large lexan dust collection hood and connecting it to my dust collector. This made it virtually dust free.

I have a similar set-up using the Kreg system, except that I used an addtional piece of track on the left side. Mine will cut just over 4 1/2’ on the right and nearly 8’ on the left. It is built onto a cabinet that is five feet wide.
