Hey Y’all

Wondering if any of you have made/know of anyone who has made a table/extension for there hollow chisel mortiser(benchtop).

My idea is kind of like a miter saw station. Where the miter saw is kinda inset so the table is flush with the station. (example

Is there a reason no one(that I can find) has done this(ie stupid idea)?

no such thing as a stupid idea to improve woodworking functionability
as long as it is safe for the operator, onlookers and bystanders.
Pinterest has all kinds of “mortise station” examples.


Norm Abram built one on one of his TV shows.
