Deluxe Miter Saw Station



I made a miter saw station with 2 drawer banks, 2 adjustable shelf sections and a section in the middle for a shop vac for the miter saw. Also there are 2 upper cabinets for more tool storage. The base of the station is made of 2 sheets of 1/2" plywood with 2 x 4's glued with liquid nails and screwed in between. It sits on six 4" swivel casters. On the back side I made storage for 6 or so sheets of plywood and a rack for hardwood lumber. I got the idea from an article I read and did some modifications to the layout.

Wired 2 sets of outlets behind the miter saw for power. One to power the miter saw and one to power the shop vac. I plan on putting in an auto switch so when the miter saw comes on the shop vac automatically comes on and turns off a few seconds after the miter saw stops.

The drawers are on full extension glides. The right side set of drawers is for routers and other small power tools in the bottom drawer with router bits above. While the left set is for small accessories and jigs. Put a power strip with usb outlets in the top drawer for charging my various devices.

The upper cabinets have dado's for dividers. Also mounted a 4 foot LED light over the saw.

Used the Kreg Precision Track & Stop Kit for the stops on the miter saw.
