I was running out of organized space in the shop and miter saw stations are all the rage these days.

Cabinets are made from 3/4” Maple Ply and the drawer fronts are accented with some Butternut I had leftover from another project.

The spindle sander and drill press are set back far enough so they do not interfere with long stock on the miter fence. I plan to add a t-track and stop on the right side of the miter fence at some point.

Great looking cabinets. I built mine in a similar way with pocket screws.Yuri

Yep, very cool station you have build!

What is on the third picture, mass-production of drawer fronts?

Yes, I tried to batch glue as many as possible… never enough clamps!

This is a great set-up and in fact is almost identical to mine. Nice job on the cabinets too!

Great execution on the build. Looks similar to mine, but yours is bigger. Looks great. I know you will enjoy the added storage.

As stefang said, great set-up… and a helluva better organised than mine…

Great build.

I plan on building a station to hold a miter saw, drill press and sander. Very similar to yours. Do you find that having to set back the sander and drill is inconvenient or not ergonomic? That is my only concern with the set up? How far back are they?

Thanks.

Have your say...
