Gonna be a fun thread, lots of pics hopefully, and ideas.


My bench is a little different then what has been posted previously. This video provides a little overview.

I started by writing down my requirements for the bench,

-It must be rock solid
-It must work with my mitre saw
-It must look good without limiting capabilities

The only regret with the bench thus far is not having mobility as a requirement but this just means I have the opportunity to build a better version when I move so not a huge loss haha

I am leaning toward the “simple bench” for a number of reasons. The thing I would miss most with your style of bench is something to limit length of cut, for repetitive cuts. I recently had seen 2 videos that address this on a simple bench. I am leaning toward the second guys way of doing it.
