Miter Saw Table - Progress Step 1
This winter break, I've embarked on a few projects to get my shop up and running in the new house. The first project is a mitre saw stand. I figure that if I get my saw up off the floor onto a stand, I can then begin to make a few other tables/benches to host the other tools and what-have-yous that I've collected over the years. I have two Christmas's worth of tools to unpack and set up and actually use.
I'm using this plan from the Home Depot with a few modifications including the addition of this Kreg Precision Trak and Stop Kit, so that will require me to use a thicker fence than what is spec'd in the plans. I also think I'm going to add a dust shroud and dust collection near the end. But, the first few steps in the plans - which focus on the legs and the base pieces, I'm going straight by the plans. In the photo above, you can see the four legs that I put together with 2x4's and a 2x6. The plans call pocket screws, so that's what I used to assemble them.
Let's call this step 1 project: the legs.
