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

    I have been looking for a perfect miter station design and I think I found it. Would the drawings accomodate any miter saw. I have a 10 inch Hitachi c10fch2. I am a beginner DIY’r. Having recently retired from the military with 22yrs of service for medical disability. I am trying to occupy myself with woodworking. I would love to have a copy of this plan.

    Please check your email for the Miter Saw Station Cutting Diagram. To answer your question, you may need to modify the height and width of the sliding carriage in the project to accommodate your saw. Before you begin building your Station, work out those details first, if necessary.

    Thanks for your interest in the project!

  10. Hi Chris,

    Just saw your project article on Youtube. Love your design. Looks like you have thought of everything….

    Would appreciate a copy of your Cutting Diagram PDF. Am thinking of getting a Hitachi C12RSH 305mm Slide Compound Mitre Saw which should fit quite nicely on this station.

    Thanks in advance.

    Great design! My father has asked for a miter saw for the holidays. I am getting him a Milwaukee 6955-20, and your station would make a great father-son project for us after he opens it. I would greatly appreciate a copy of the plans and cutlist.
