Convertible Miter Saw Station Plans

Storing a miter saw can be tough. Most people don’t have the space to leave it set up with long support tables. Storing it under the workbench is a pain: You gotta dig it out, set it on sawhorses and then figure out how to prop up stuff while you’re cutting. A high-end manufactured stand is great—but probably costs as much as your miter saw. So what are you going to do? Build this simple miter saw cabinet!

DIY Tip of the Day: Portable roller stand. Ripping a long board on a small portable table saw can be dangerous without extra support. If you don’t have a helper, clamp a short-nap paint roller to a sawhorse as a roller stand. Tighten the clamp firmly to prevent slipping. As you move around your work area, carry the sawhorse along. Now you’ll always have support to safely cut long boards. - William A. Goldbach
