Simple Miter Saw Station – Free DIY Plans

Ovidiu 0 List YOUR FAVORITES GapDice RANDOM PLAN

This step by step diy project is about simple miter saw station plans. I have designed this simple miter saw station so you can take your workshop to your next level. I plan to build this for my own garage, as it is sturdy, simple to build and it comes with storage shelves for other tools. Take a look over the rest of my woodworking plans, if you want to get more building inspiration.

When buying the lumber, you should select the planks with great care, making sure they are straight and without any visible flaws (cracks, knots, twists, decay). Investing in cedar or other weather resistant lumber is a good idea, as it will pay off on the long run. Use a spirit level to plumb and align the components, before inserting the galvanized screws, otherwise the project won’t have a symmetrical look. If you have all the materials and tools required for the project, you could get the job done in about a day.

How to build a miter saw stand

Miter saw station frame

Miter saw station frame

The first step of the project is to build the frame for the miter saw station. Cut the components from 1×4 lumber and lay them on a level surface. Align the edges flush and make sure the corners are square. Drill pilot holes through the 32″ long components and insert 1 5/8″ screws to assemble everything tightly. Add glue to the joints.

Fitting the legs to the miter saw station

Fit the supports to the front of the miter saw station, as well.

Lower shelves

Lower shelves

Use 3/4″ plywood for the lower shelves. Make the cuts to the plywood sheets so you can fit them around the legs. Align the edges flush, drill pilot holes and insert 1 5/8″ screws to lock the shelves to the frame.

Bottom of the tray

Bottom of the tray

Use a piece of 1×4 lumber for the bottom of the trays. Fit the slat between the two supports and lock it into place with 1 5/8″ screws. You can use these trays for storing screws or other small tools.

Miter saw table

Last but not least, you should take care of the finishing touches. Fill the holes with wood putty and smooth the surface with 120-220 grit sandpaper. Apply a few coats of stain over the components to protect them from decay and to enhance the look of the miter saw station.
