This is my new mitre station that I recently finished. I got the idea from a fellow LJ. Sorry, I don’t remember the name of the person. If your out there, feel free to refresh my memory. Anyway, I made a few changes to suit my needs and this is what I came up with. Its got 4 drawers, all have heavy duty full extension drawer slides. The lateral supports are supported with arms that are hinged and swing out with levelers to fine tune the height. Its not 100% complete yet, but fully functional at this point. Anyway, thanks for looking and feel free to comment.

Looks good so far. I know you said it isn’t 100% complete yet. I hope you are planning on putting face boards over each drawer which extend from each side of the cabinet. That will help keep the dust out of the drawers and from sticking to the grease in the hinges.

The wings are held up by hinged arms that swing out. if you look carefully, you can see the one on the left hand side of the picture.

Nice job! I’ve been wondering what to do with my mitre saw. I’ve been eyeing a new one so I’m waiting to build a station.

Real nice set up. I have been pushing something like this around as I want to give my Sliding Miter a little smaller footprint in my shop. Going into favorites so I can look at it later.

Nice job, the wings are a great set up. I agree a face frame is needed. It just looks incomplete or unfinished.

I made a stand like that but I think yours turned out nicer. I definitely like the drawers.
It looks like the wings are tall enough to support a workpiece when closed. Are they?
Nice lookin piece!
