After studding a lot in the I decided to make my own miter saw station. I have small workshop, so the dimensions are the minimum for the station and maximum for my workshop !!!! The wings of the station is adjustable and it is connected to my dust collector. All wood that I have use are from scrap.

Very nice project and the folding wings saves valuable shop space. How much of the dust does that hood catch?

I’m assuming the threaded rod lets you dial in those extension wings perfectly? If so, awesome idea!

Very nice! Been thinking of making one but haven’t decided on a design I like. Mind if I attempt to copy yours?

Thanks for your comments. Northwest29 I think hood catch about 80% of the dust. If I add a plastic curtain it will goes to 95%. Hawaiilad I will take some more photo and I will upload it, in general the hood is made from plywood 4mm. bigfoot11 the rods let me move the wings from 90 degrees to -10 degrees. So its perfect to adjust the wings to 0 degrees. Tugboater78 of course you can copy and paste mine, it will be my honor

This set up looks like just what I need for my small shop, but I’m a beginner and wonder if you have any written plans or at least some dimensions, and what kind of rods are used for the wings?

Any help is much appreciated!
