Folding Miter Saw Station
Give your miter saw the home it deserves on this versatile workstation. The folding wings make it easy to store when not in use.
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.

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.
