Miter Saw Station

Fold-out tables extend the usefulness of your miter sa w, and a stop block sa ves you the trouble of measuring and marking the workpiece. There's also a convenient storage space for cutoffs.

Chop Saw Storage

ings up. Flaps out. Levelers down. No, this isn't a lesson on Hying airplanes. It's just one way of explaining how this miter saw station works.

The "wings" are really the underpinnings for two long extension tables. With the miter saw mounted to a center cabinet, the tables provide sturdy support on each side when you're cutting long workpieces to length.

fence & stop block. But there's more to these tables than holding up a workpiece. Each extension has a fence that will accept an adjustable stop block. A tape measure on each fence then lets you cut workpieces to length without measuring or marking them beforehand.

fold-down extensions. Regardless of the speed and accuracy this provides, the long extension tables would be in the way when you're not using the the miter saw. Especially when you consider that they have an overall "wingspan" of nearly eight feet.

So to save space when the saw is not in use, the extension tables fold down when you're done. This creates a com pact tool stand that can roll out of the way for storage or out to the driveway to tackle the next job.

bin & shelf. Wherever you happen to be working, there's bound to be a number of cutoffs. But you don't need to throw them on the floor. That's because there's a removable scrap bin on the bottom. And if you're working with several pieces, there's a simple shelf to hold them until you're ready to start cutting.
