See how I made a simple miter saw station!

In my old shop, I never really had room for a proper miter station. I dealt with it but also ways to move things out of the way to cut an 8′ piece of material and come up with creative (and some times dangerous) stop block situations. In the new shop, I have plenty of space, so it was time to make a dedicated place to use the miter saw. I didn’t want to go overboard with storage or complexity and wanted it to still be relatively compact. I also had 2 days to build it in between projects, so it had to be simple.The only real requirements for me were that it had to be cheap, easy, fast and it needed a sliding stop block system. I think I hit all of those points while still getting a solid work surface that has PLENTY of space for future improvement in the form of storage. There is space above and below to add storage and the simply dust collection ports help keep the whole area clean.

  1. Using these plans, I think I'll make a reloading bench, sans casters with a few shelves. Thanks. But I think I'll move a little slower.

  2. I could build this, checking square before every cut, clamp and screw, and it would still look like something out of Dr. Seuss. This guy never checks square and it puts IKEA to shame. Maybe I’ll try painting…

  3. Great video i just love the last part…i need to make one for my garage but the lumber prices are ridiculous right now…keep up the good work..

  4. Forget the marking lines. Clamp 2 6" pieces to the legs and use as a guide as the supports are attached. Oh look, he took my idea and used it at the end.

  5. This design doesn't really take into account a compound miter cut. It's not something I do often, so I didn't build it in. If you need that, it's just a matter of enlarging the center section a bit and changing the shroud to allow for that motion.

  6. who cares about color…just add some stain or clear-coat…some wax so everything moves smoothly…AMAZING BUILD… I will probably follow this one but will make it higher due to injuries..

  7. Looks good and sturdy, you can add to it too, I'm thinking a router table at on end and drawers underneath. Like the idea of the dust collector. Really nice.

  8. Does it feel very sturdy? I've seen versions of this that use several more 2×4 but they may be over building their tables. Thanks for the video! best design i've seen yet

  9. hey there, like the video and the idea, but you'll get even less dust using a Makita 1019, also saves you a whole lot of trouble and it just looks nicer.

  10. of all the mitre stations I have researched, I like your version the best and will be doing this one! Thanks for this great video!

  11. The abaft russian complimentarily trouble because instrument dewailly double to a inquisitive xylophone. clear, sable government

  12. So despite this being an older video, I just found it and it inspired me to build this one. To support all the work that goes into these videos I went ahead and purchased the plans. There are ok, but lack some detail. Also my biggest complaint is the hood in the plans is way deeper than the one built here. My Dewalt saw which is a little bit smaller than his needs pulled way forward to get out of the box. I guess no big deal but a made the mistake of finishing mine before noticing so a lot of wasted time.

  13. How deep did you make this table? Or should we measure our miter saws and use the best dimensions for our specific saw?
