Miter Station

As my garage woodshop got filled with more and more supplies and tools, I found that it became more and more disorganized. I watched James from King’s Fine Woodworking’s video series on the extreme miter station. I thought it was beyond my skill level, but I decided to tackle it anyway. I modified his plan to fit my space.
I made the cabinets and torsion box table top from Baltic Birch plywood. I used the Kreg Top Trak Fence and measuring tape with the flip stop for the top track. All ten drawers are dovetailed. I have the miter saw and shop vac synchronized with an I-Socket. I used lacquer to finish.
The project took a number of months working part time.

Stellar job on the build of the miter saw station…..I’ve watched that video (s) that James King did when he built his station….he is a very talented woodworker…..I enjoy watching his vids, as he is a good commentator and speaker, also…..The station you built will last you for years….Plenty of drawers and storage….Nicely done….!!

Looks great. Should make woodworking even more enjoyable for you.
Well done.

This is a wonderful base for a miter saw stand. It has a large amount of storage room and some nice fences for stops and accuracy. It’s nicely done and will be a fine addition to your shop.
