After a few years of storing my miter saw on the floor and setting up sawhorses every time I used it, I decided that it was time for a change. I only had four criteria: 1.) Mobile 2.) Plenty of in-feed and out-feed support 3.) Compact 4.) Cheap or Free!

All in all I am quite pleased with it. The folding wings are very sturdy and take about 2 seconds to set up or put down.

It is still not quite finished, but is functioning quite well. Eventually I am going to add a dust extractor to the shelf below as well as a length gauge and stop block system to each of the wings.

Nice project. I am sure you are going to get many years of satisfaction out of this project. I look forward to the updated pictures with the fences and stop blocks added to the support wings.

Thanks for sharing.

Great solution for small shops like mine (playing Sokoban most of the time).
