Here are a few pics of the radial arm saw stand that I am just about finished with. I still need to put a new face on the one door under the cabinet. I have about 12 foot of counter top space for cutting boards. Just shy of 8 feet to the left of the saw. The one thing that I am not sure if I like is the chopsaw location. I have nice clearance to the left of the blade by virtually none to the right of the blade.

Good job, a table that big makes it really easy when your cutting long pieces.

Really nice workspace. What is the radial saw table made of ? I have a radial arm & I need to replace the table. I put a shelf on the open stand & I have to say it stores sawdust very well. A cabinet ? Someday.

Radial saws are getting rarer and rarer these days but I have a soft spot for them as my first saw in 1971 was a Craftsman radial arm saw. And nothing beats them for chopping up long boards to rough size.

Maybe, if you need space to the right for the miter saw you could pull it forward and have a couple of riser blocks that sit on the radial table and support the workpiece at the correct height for the miter saw.

Here’s one I built about 5 years ago….it handles my chop saw and radial arm with plenty of storage….I can cut an 18 ’ board with a little left over…..
