Folding Miter Saw Station

Give your miter saw the home it deserves on this versatile workstation.

A miter saw is handy for cutting long stock to length, but you need to have plenty of room on either side for the stock you're cutting. Then there's the problem of how to contain all of the sawdust that gets thrown about. The workstation you see here is designed to help with both of these problems. When extended, the folding wings are high enough to clear your workbench, router table, or other nearby worksurfaces. This means you can tuck the workstation just about anywhere along a wall. And when the wings aren't needed, they store neatly inside the cabinet. As for the issue of how to control the sawdust, most of the chips are thrown back into the overhead hood and funneled into a plastic container that's hidden underneath the workstation.
