I have been planning to build a Miter Saw Station for quite a while. About a year ago, I made a rough sketch of what I had in mind. But most of this build was either made up on the fly or changed in some way. I have a small shop and space comes at a premium. I wanted my Miter Saws Station to have plenty of storage including drawers in the otherwise wasted space of the toe kick area. I also wanted to incorporate built in dust collection ports with easy to access blast gates. I thought about housing most of my bench top tools on this unit as well. I realized I would have to come up with some kind of sliding/locking fence system in order to have access to the bench top tools. Although there is always room for improvement, I have been using my Miter Saw Station for several months and I am loving it.

Not only does your miter station have a ton of brilliant space-saving ideas, but it also looks beautiful—like a piece of fine furniture. You should have many years of enjoyable woodworking with this in your shop. Thanks for sharing.

Great design – one can tell a lot of thought went into the concept. Looks fantastic as well!

haven’t seen that fence being part of the slide-out tools idea before and the toe kick drawers are great. thanks for sharing!

Holy cow that is creative. I have a very similar layout with that bandsaw and the miter station I just built, but my bandsaw in on wheels. This is so cool. I do wonder what you do if you want to run a 4 footer or something through the bandsaw?

That is very nice.
I especially like the dual purpose pull out shelves for other tools.
