This my take on the Jay Bates mitersaw station.
#mitersaw #miterstation #workshop #cabinets
Lots of storage was my main objective and cabinets would have been the quick and cheap solution. But I am not a fan of cabinets. For my they are an inefficient use of space. I ended up with 34 drawers and just 4 cabinets after all was said and done.
Right angle clamping jigs are a must to keep things square. Make some if you don’t already have them.
Carriage bolt feet allow for adjusting level across the cases and keeps the wood from being in contact with the concrete.
I mounted my saw about 1/4” forward of the auxiliary fences on the cabinets. I found it was to hard to get 12” of fence perfectly aligned to the saw fence and what I really wanted to the fence for is for a stop to make repeatable cuts. So I use the fence on the saw for alignment and the auxiliary fence for the length stop.
Laying out the sheets of ply for the drawer faces. I wanted to grain match all of the fronts and with so many this was was the easiest way to keep them in order.
Toilet Flange hardware is the perfect thing to use to level the saw to the infeed and outfeed.
This kit comes with the rubber washers, buts, and bolts needed to mount your saw to the work surface. The rubber washers give you the play you need to perfect the alignment of the saw table to the infeed and outfeed tables.
