A Miter Saw Station for Many

Sometimes being Woodworker’s Journal’s “Field” Editor, I feel like I’m way, way out in some field. What I mean here is, I’m one step removed from the day-to-day feedback we receive in our home office from readers about what we publish. A lot of mail comes in, but generally I don’t get to see it. I work from home, which is several states away.

Well, thanks to this blog, I’m getting quite a lot of feedback from you regarding the “Ultimate Miter Saw Stand” I built for the June 2010 print issue. It seems to be resonating well with many who are looking for a better place to put their miter saws. Lots of you are asking for a Cutting List to help build it, and I’m happy to forward a PDF to anyone that needs it. Just leave a comment and I’ll send it to you.  Click Here to download the Cutting List.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Due to the enormous amount of interest in this project, we have made the Ultimate Miter Saw Stand (including the plans for the entire project, the Cutting List, the correction listed below, and the plans for optional Scrap Bins) available as a Downloadable Plan in our online store. Click here to purchase and receive the plan immediately!

So, thanks for your interest in the project! When I designed it, I was a bit concerned that its overall size would be too big for many shops. That doesn’t seem to be a problem—or you are changing the proportions as needed to fit your space. Good deal!

Two more things in this regard:

1) Email us a photo of your completed Miter Saw Station if you build it. It’s always fun to show nice reader projects both here on the blog and in the “Letters” section of the print magazine. Your photo might give others a boost to get out there and build one for themselves.

2) There is one mistake in the Sides/Divider Panels drawing on page 42 that I’d like to point out (a reader caught it a while back): the spacing between the two shelf dadoes is 11 1/4″, not 18″ as originally appeared in the print magazine.

Lastly, if there are shop projects you’d like to see us design and build for future print issues, let me know in the comment section below. I’ll be happy to throw them into the collective hopper as we plan for the future. We’re always looking for fresh ideas.

Catch you in the shop,

Chris Marshall, Field Editor

  13. This Miter Saw station is exactly what I have been looking for. What a great way to store cutoffs that seem to be forever building up. Can you send me the PDF?

  14. Hi, I’d love a cutlist. Also, will this station accomodate a 12″ slider? Are the full plans available somewhere?

    Thanks

  15. Chris,

    I have been looking for the ideal miter saw station for quite awhile and I think this is it. I would love to build it and would greatly appreciate the cutting diagram for this project.

    Thank you,

  18. I would like a copy of the pdf for the miter saw cutting diagram. It looks great. I am hoping to incorporte the my central dust collection system into these plans.

    Thanks,

  19. Hey,
    Really great station, it is especially suited for the shop where you do more than bird houses and coasters for sweating glasses. The mobility is well thought out as is everything else on this project. A senior editor of one of those snooty WoodWorking Magazines could not do as good even with their large staff helping them. It surly is a prize and I am looking forward to the PDF so I can have one just like this one in my shop. THANK YOU, Joe

  20. Mel,

    That PDF should be in your email. You’ll also need a copy of our June issue to build the project, for a complete set of drawings. If you don’t have it, here’s a link to order a back issue:

  24. I just saw the “A Miter Saw Station for Many” and really liked it. I especially like the mobility factor. I have a small work space (my garage) so mobility is important. Could you please forward plans the the saw station to me?

    Thanks, Tom M

  25. Could I please have a copy of your plan by email. Is it necessary or helpful even to add a dust hood?
