I so often show my projects at home. I figured I would show one from work. I am responsible for the (wood) shop at work. For three years now, I have been using my Dewalt sliding compound miter saw on a collapsible Dewalt miter stand. These stands work in a pinch, but I have a strong dislike for an everyday use.
With some un-used metal cabinets, left over melamine and birch ply, and some purchased Poplar (Trim&Fence), I put this together.
I am not finished yet. I decided to use the left 50" cabinet as a router table as well. Last night I purchased T-Track that I will route and install in the table top. This will allow my saw and left fence to move forward and backword with a quick release lever. I will also have a piece that runs the length of the cabinet for add-on like feather boards, guides, etc....
When finished, I will have a highly useable miter station/router table for a fraction of the cost.
When this is done at work, I will have to start on one similar for home!
that is all
