Miter Saw Station Plans with Drawers using Kreg Trak and Stop System

Perfect Miter Saw Bench

IMG_3498The perfect miter saw bench includes drawers, a stop system for repeatable cuts and a perfectly flat surface to cut on.  Well, at least in our shop that is the perfect miter saw bench.  Each shop and each individual will have to decide what is perfect for their uses and shop.  If you are building a miter saw bench, we have free plans for you to see how we built our miter saw bench and to possibly give you ideas for yours.  Our bench is made with a combination of metal and wood to give us the strength we wanted and the ability to have a very flat bench for a long period of time.  We opted not to lower the miter saw in the bench, but to use the drawer system to create more storage and bring the deck up to the height of our saw.  Everyone has their own way of designing and building what they want.

Our Miter Saw Bench Plans are broken up into two sets of instructions.  We first build the bench out of a combination of metal and wood.  Some might stop there or slightly adjust those plans to work for them.  We also have the second set of plans that detail our wings with storage.  This second set could be used to build this on your existing bench or other area you already have set up.  This set includes the Kreg Trak and Stop system and an adjustable fence to make sure you are perfectly in line with your miter saw fence.

Storage Plans

IMG_3500Storage in a shop can be priceless as we all need more room.  Our Miter Bench Plans for the wings include multiple drawer systems in order to give the user an area to store blades, common tools, tape measures or anything else you might want to store out of site but also within reach while working at your miter saw bench.  Having everything in reach allows for more efficient working conditions and eventually faster and more accurate operations.

While our miter saw bench plans do not include any storage under the bench, you could always add that at any time.  In our case, we had items that would slide or roll in under the bench to make the space usable.  This is very important in keeping a shop usable and without clutter.

Woodworking Plans

As with all woodworking plans, there is always room for improvement for your situation.  Please feel free to share on our forum or in the comments below what you would do in order to make this work better for you.  On the forum you can share pictures and other items from your personal build.  We invite you to join in and help other woodworkers and metal fabricators work to make the perfect shop or the shop of our dreams.  Also feel free to share our plans with others by using the links above.

    I downloaded your plan for the miter saw station but when I tried to print the plans it told me I needed a password to print. What password do I use? Thank you
