Great Blog! In-depth info/instructions and super pics. It gave me some much needed knowledge on adding a pedestle unit to a previous desk I constructed years ago. Thanks for your efforts.New Miter Saw Station - Construction Details
I have been working diligently trying to get this phase of the makeover finished.
Here are some pics of the construction.
Case work with drawer slides ready for drawers or trays.
Top of the cabinet. The miter saw portion will bolt on to the top of the two cabinets.
Laying out the templates for the sides and ends. Dang that MDF makes a lot of dust.
Rough cutting the openings so I can route 'em smooth using the template I cut from MDF.
Two routers are better than one! Here I was routing the pieces for the sides and ends of the miter saw stand. When I finished routing a piece, I would use the other router to do a little round over to ease the sharp edges. Then I would move to the next piece and repeat.
Time to drill a few pocket holes. Check out my air filtration unit in the background. Don't laugh, it works great.
Dry fit. I cut the two tops for the stand and set the saw in place to see how it would fit.
More construction pics coming soon including the final assy and the installation of the Kreg Precision Trak. Rockler had a 20% off sale going so I couldn't pass up saving almost $25 on the Trak.
