Miter Saw Station Plans
I designed this miter saw station with advanced features and maximizing space in mind. It’s modular, in that the end units are identical and the centre section can be made any length to suit the model of saw that you have. You can even add more end units for additional space, if needed.
It has an interesting approach to storage, in that it uses vertical drawers in the upper cabinet. That space can also be used for built in dust collection, as I’ve done with mine in the left side unit. The open bays in the lower end cabinets can house tools that roll out – mine has my thickness planer behind the door on the left, and my router table in the space on the right. The centre section can be made any size to accommodate any model of saw, large or small.
The plans for this project are fairly basic, but they do show all of the dimensions for all of the parts. Included are a material list, 2 full sheet cut diagrams for the four sheets of plywood needed to build the station as shown above, and 8 drawings showing the part names, locations and dimensions.
This plan set relies on the build video (in the build article) for assembly details – refer to that often as you progress through construction.
The station can be made different heights by changing the indicated parts on the plan. Mine is the taller version, and that provides extra space in the open bays for roll out tools. It also adds more drawer space in the centre section.
For your convenience, this plan is made with both imperial and metric dimensions, with the metric dimensions (millimeters) in brackets. Screw sizes and other hardware are in imperial units.
