This is my multi function miter saw station.

It is “multi function” because unlike other miter saw stations it is designed to house my big 12” miter saw, scroll saw, my spindle sander and my main bench grinder.

The top features a baffled dust channel that is hooked upto my main dust collection system and this does a great job at picking up all the dust that shoots behind the saw, (More details in the videos bellow) for collecting the dust from the saw and spindle sander I have also got a build in shop vac that is housed in the middle section of the cabinet.

The shelves are installed on full extension runners and hold a huge amount of items and weight.

For details on how I build this miter saw station watch the videos bellow;

Part One – Building the Carcass and Starting the Top

Part two – Installing the fence, adding some trim and custom dust collection

Part Three – Installing the floating drawer

Awesome! I have been wondering how I was going to build a station with my sliding miter saw without taking up to much real-estate.

I have watched all of this group of videos on building the Miter Station. I think that you have used the space very well, and you have things at a very good height. I was looking at your saw and I could not see a name on it. What brand is it and how well do you like it? Does it have a height stop, so you can cut half lap joints? I am in the market for a 12”(30+ mm) Sliding Miter Saw and have looked at several including Jet and Dewalt.
Thank you for your Help.

Thanks for the comments guys.

Bigrock; My saw is from 909 tools and its model is the 305DB. It is a cheap saw but I absolutely love it, yes it does have a height stop but there is a problem with it were the back edge of the cut loops up slightly when trenching ig that makes sense. If your interested in reading more there is a review I wrote viewable here
