Dual Tool Workstation
This tool station pulls double duty by serving as a planer stand as well as a miter saw station - complete with extension wings and fences.
Making use of a miter saw or planer is often a compromise. For a long time I simply set one or the other on the top of my workbench, setting up makeshift supports when I needed to work with long stock. But the dual tool station shown above allows me to make better use of both tools without tying up my bench. To provide extra support when working with long stock on either the miter saw or planer, there’s an extension wing and auxiliary fence (for the miter saw) on each side of the station. To save space, the extension wings fold down to the sides and the fences store inside. Besides the fences, there’s also a shelf for storing the tool you’re not using, as you can see above. The shelf slides out to make it easy to get the tool in and out. Finally, a deep drawer on full-extension slides holds manuals, accessories, and anything else you might need to use with your miter saw or planer.

This table is like a workbench in a kit. Slide a panel, twist a knob, and it converts from a "briefcase" to a workstation for your hobbies.
The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
