I need something mobile for my Bosch 10” Sliding Mitersaw so I started building a cabinet for it with casters. About that time I finished a Stockroom Supply 18” drum sander and needed a place for it… I put in a full extension drawer/shelf for the sander, so far I’ve left the sander on it’s shelf and use it sitting on a low stool. There’s room below the sander to store my sander supplies and a compartment below the saw for dust collection. I’m still working on the dust collection for where the dust bag was. We are going to the St.Louis WW Show Friday and hope to get the fittings there. It’s made from Oak plywood and the edges are solid Oak.

I like it! I’m planning to build something similar for my miter saw and planer. Nice work!

Looks Great John,
I’m planning to build a stand for my sliding mitre saw too. In fact I have the same model. I’ve got a couple of design questions. Why the large hole in the top? Is it for dust collection? Also, in the plans I’ve found many people add hinged side extenions to support longer boards. I’ve been considering the value of the extensions, particularly on the right side. Do you mind sharing your thinking on this issue?

Patron, there are wings in the plan I just have not decided which kind to go with yet and I’ve looked at several designs I want them as economical and as simple as possible, ideas gladly accepted. If and/or when I get a wing done I’ll post it here or in a new post.

Glen Peterson, the big hole in the top is for dust collection. I have also drilled holes in the center of the mitersaw for dust collection right below where the blade does it’s cutting. I connected my 4” hose to the compartment under the saw and ran a 2 1/2” line from the “dust compartment” to the back of the saw where the bag was. This did not work well for me but I will be getting fitting to connect the “bag hose” into the 4” hose at the back of the saw. I’m going to try now to add a pictures of the bottom of the saw now hope I can get that accomplished, DONE. I will give feedback after I get the new hook-up done, keep your fingers crossed and a prayer might also work.

I know little about woodworking but this looks impressive to me; the way it stores and keeps things organized.
