I constructed the plywood framing of my miter saw station and when it was assembled and on rolling casters I soon realized the whole thing was completely out of wack – not SQUARE.

I quickly realized I wasn’t going to be installing walnut edge banding, nor making doors for this miter saw station since they probably wouldn’t have closed anyways.

I said to myself…. well, this will have to work for a couple years, unfinished and out of square.

That lasted 12 hrs and then I decided, since I have half of the plywood waiting to be installed on the miter saw station, I might as well go buy 4 new sheets of maple ply tomorrow and start over again, and that’s exactly what happen.

Here’s a quick video showing you were I’m at in the process of building my miter saw station.

Hope you enjoy!

Sorry you had to start again, but glad to hear you discovered the issue before was completely finished, really great solution to the dust collection

Thanks Norm, me too. A lot of time and money was saved finding the mistake early on.

Thanks for watching!

Working with wood is all trial and error, i.m.o.
