« Part 1: Base cabinets and vac hookup Part 2 of Dual Miter Saw station series Part 3: Clamp extension and finishing »

So my last work session saw a lot of good progress on this project, but we are far from done. I needed to finish a support cabinet on either side of each miter saw, as well as a small space to house the Oneida.

Let’s start with the basic layout of the base cabinets

And then we assemble and add stability:

Angle brackets were made.with plywood and a pocket hole jig:

A small the bottom to prevent sagging….

After the cabinet went together, it was time to attach it to the left side of the unit, checking to make sure it was flush and square. I think the flooring is a little off, because I know my measurements are all spot on ;-)

The right side was a little trickier because we needed to leave a space for the Oneida. I put together the base cabinet, and prepped the top to fit each of the supports. A small line of glue on each of the supports:

And we were ready to put it all together:

So all of the base cabinets are now officially finished. Next up will be sanding, staining, and then adding a face frame!

Check it out!
