That’s a lot of information, let’s see if I got the gist of it:

Having a long bench with a lowered section in the center for a miter saw is relatively common. So that makes sense.

The back of the bench will be along the wall. And there is a wall at each end of the bench “wings” (left and right)? So that the bench is enclosed on 3 sides?

You want to add t-track to each “wing” of the bench. Starting at the miter saw and extending to the left and right? You will use this t-track as a way of positioning stop blocks for the miter saw?

Finally, you are concerned that you will not be able to access the t-track because the walls on each end of the bench will be butted up against the track?

My first question would be, can you access the t-track from the miter saw area?

My second question would be, are you sure this is the best application of t-track in your project? What other ideas have you considered and why did you reject those ideas?

There are plenty of videos on people making miter saw benches on youtube. Check those out and see if anything helps.
