Project Information

Well I'm calling it the "ultimate" miter saw station anyway :)
  • 14.5' long.
  • 15 sheets of 3/4" ply.
  • No doors, all drawers.
  • 20 full extension 24" deep drawers.
  • One pull out tray (bottom left) for storing my planer out of the way.
  • 12" sliding miter saw with 4" dust collection port in the back of the dust box.
  • Custom Detroit Redwings drawer pulls cut on a CNC.
  • Stop block setup to the left of the blade with about 106" capacity.
  • The lower cabinet to the right of the blade is 48" long so a full 8' board can be placed to the right of the blade and it won't tip over the edge.
  • Storage "bins" above the drawers at eye level for quick access stuff and stuff that doesn't need to be in drawers.
  • Openings in the bottom between the cabinets house my air compressor and a trash can.
  • Two large 24" deep, 12" tall, and 48" wide drawers on the bottom right for larger items.
  • Lots of future storage optimization potential within each drawer for sliding trays and layered storage options.

For those who are interested I have a lot of details on this build in four different videos and articles and I also have a set of plans available:

JSB,
sometimes you come across a piece of work you admire and envy in equal measure,
this may be one of those moments.
Awesome job Sir.

Wow! Very nicely done. I've been planning to re-organize my tiny shop and I may very well take a few cues from your design.

Jay, I've seen alot of your video's and even subscribe to your youtube channel so don't take this the wrong way. Just curious why you didn't add any detail to the Drawer Pulls Especially since they were made on a CNC. From the pics they seem to lose alot of appeal/detail, at least to me. Otherwise, GREAT job!!!

You are on my top 5 woodwoorkers list. What I like best is that you are consistent with your weekly postings or vblogs. Another bright spot is that you endorse the CNC as a woodworking tool. Keep up the pace. For those of you who like a little bit of humor- watch the vid with Jay and his wife watching "glue" dry :)

Man got to be impressed with something large like this station, especialy when you have free space to put it.
Looks very clean and well organized.

Jay, as always your projects are impressive and inspiring! My only question relates to dust collection. I noticed in your video that you simply have the dust shoot out the back into a "trap." Is there any particular reason that you did not want to run something to the miter saw? That said, the good far outweighs any bad in this design. Great work!

John - I like the silhouette look. I made a prototype with detail on the inside and it looked way too busy.

Redsox9 - I have a 4" port at the bottom of the dust box and that's good enough for me. It pulls all of the dust out of the air. All of the overspray goes to the back of the saw and once or twice a year I can brush it into the port. Taming dust collection at the blade of a miter saw is wasted effort in my opinion…just my opinion. Keep in mind I wasted a lot of time on making the drawer pulls ;)

Wow! Very cool! You should take it as flattery, cause I think this may get copied!

Nice Work Jay! Wondered when this would get posted up on LJ's. Followed your build closely… what are the plans for the new Sawstop? Going to build a station with a new router table?

Revrok - I'd like to make a benchtop or sawhorse router table with the same lift design.

Love your website, your videos, your generosity, your no-non-sense approach, and yes you have created THE ULTIMATE MITER SAW STATION (AND SO MUCH MORE)!!!

Great project and you inspired me to do a similar set up along the back wall of my garage, but just drawers and bench top. I have also started the side wall which will give me a total of 27 liner feet and about 30 drawers ! Thanks for the inspiration! but mine didn't come out near as precise.
