Gengaskokaren, it looks like you have put together a nice shop. And I am glad to see that you keep it a shop and not park cars in there. I have always thought that parking a car in the shop is a waste of perfectly good shop space. :) You have built a nice miter saw station for your shop. It looks pretty solid and you certainly can handle long boards/moldings with it.

Thanks for the tour of your shop. I enjoyed taking a look at it.

The miter saw station is a quick build but works realy well. It has two door hinges and can be flipped down after the saw is removed to get access for the car. As I mentioned for someone else, our cars have electrical engine and cab heaters so my wife doesn’t complain anymore that the garage is occupied. She only need to remember to connect the cord… (happened several times) And disconnect before take off… (Has not happened yet…)

Great space, and I bet that Bosch saw is great. I have heard nothing but good things about Bosch saws.

Yes, the Bosch saw is great and also realy accurate even though it is a saw mainly done to be portable. One drawback is the noise but that I can live with that.

I continue to improve my shop mostly by throwing/selling unnecessary stuff. It is actually the cheapest way to get more space…
A friend of mine is building a descent shop, 127 m² = 1367 sq feet, with heating and insulation to match our climate and he will pay approx 1 million SEK = 150000 US Dollar. I feel that my budget does not allow that.

Hey, you have a fine setup there. I like the flip down saw table because it saves a lot of space but easily setup. Nice going.
