After spending a long winter going back and forth with ideas for the shop, I recently settled on a design and capitalized on it. I figured I should build it before I changed my mind for the eighth time. I was heavily inspired by the miter station built on the New Yankee Workshop in season 15. I did make a change, with making the entire surface of the cabinet a workable surface. This meant dropping the saw down a couple of inches.
Otherwise, construction was basically the same: strips of plywood spanning the cabinet sides, topped with a 2×4 grid, plywood and hardboard. I routed a dado for a t-track. What’s left is to make the rest of the drawers and trim the top.
Here is the progression of the miter saw stand over the last couple of months, from sitting on the router table to the workbench to the new setup.
