Depending on where you are in your learning woodworking journey, as well as how ambitious you feel, 2×4 construction is a far less demanding application when it comes to needed precision. I ve built cabinetry a bit before with decent results and feel confident about doing so again, but it just so happens that I m about to build a miter station and I ve found the one I m going to base mine on. It s built with 2×4s.

The one I m basing mine on is Bob Claggett of I Like To Make Stuff s recent station build video on YouTube:
He also has an “improvements” video as well:

It s straightforward, solid, functional and leaves future mods up to the user as you and I figure out how what we do with it in reality, differs what we thought we d do before we built it. ;) Much like you stated above, I intend to make rolling thingy holders for underneath.

His is actually one of the many I watched videos on. He has a lot of features on his that I like.
