Project Information

Measuring at 12 feet long this mitre saw cabinet takes up a lot of shop space, so I tried to make it do several things.

First, it is a stand for the mitre saw. It has a drawer below the saw where the sawdust drops. The drawer does not fully close so you can put scraps into the drawer in the front. A piece of plexiglass goes across the top, to contain dust and for safety. The dust box is melamine to allow dust to drop easily.

The portable power tools are stored above, and accessories for the tools (collets, etc) are in the pencil boxes.

General storage is to the left in shoe boxes.

Storage for jigs and more power tools is below.

The fence has a T track on both sides which holds the stop. In the third picture the stop is engaged. It does not hit the top, so sawdust is less likely to build up in front of it. The fourth picture shows it turned allowing 1 1/2 inch boards to go underneath it, if not needed. Very simple to make and the stop works well.

You have some really good organization going on in there. And looks like you also maximized your
storage underneath . I could never devote this much space to a miter saw bench. Not enough room
in my shop.

Can those fences be moved back or taken off to open up the bench for assembly and such ? Of course
you guys with larger shops don't have to consider mult-purpose utilization as much as us woodworkers
with smaller areas.

Great job on that station.

Nice job, I like the consistent coloring of the cabinets. I have a label maker myself but my labels always come loose, are you using a special material?

Adding my voice to the chorus, very nicely done. What do you store in the cubbies directly below the work surface?

This is a very beautiful setup, makes me drool, and want to get off my donkey, and do something with the available space that I have. I like the openness of everything. I notice no dust collection system, how do you handle the freeborn dust Don't laugh too hard, but at least twice a year, I get my leaf blower out, and clean things up, takes a few days afterwards to find everything.

Very nice work station, but I'm pretty sure there's a law against a shop being that organized! :)

Nice work, but you are making some of us look really bad with all that neat and clean you have going on. ROFL
