I finally decided to get things more organized and build a miter saw bench and storage. I incorporated the bench into the wood rack I built earlier. The outside is maple with just Arm-a-seal to protect it. I got the counter top from Lowe's for $46, and made the fence out of maple with t-slots on the front and top. It has a set of 6, 8, 10 and 12" drawers with some re-purposed drawer slides from an old desk. The dust hood collects a lot more of the dust than my old set-up. Hopefully this boosts productivity while making the wood shop look less like a disaster area.
