In this three part video series we build a “multi function miter saw station” that will be used not only as a miter saw station but also a space for my sanding machines, drill press and scroll saw.

In part two I finish assembling the table top by building the auxiliary fence as well as installing some custom dust extraction.

Nice Video, Jord. I find using a small shop-vac type hose on the top port instead of the dust bag helps with the dust extraction. Maybe you could add a small hose off the main dust collector branch or something? Otherwise I think it is pretty cool the way you have it. Can’t wait to see the cabinets.

Been thinking about making one for my shop
Most I seen have been strictly chop saw
I like your idea of a multifunction table.

Thanks rounder, I think the good thing about this sort of bench is even though it takes up more space then a dedicated chop saw bench it actually saves a lot of space and adds heaps of storage.
