This is an easy to build fully modular system! I show you how to build base cabinets, which can be done in 2′ or 3′ widths. And upper cabinets in 2′ or 3′ sections. So this project is scalable to any size! Mine is 13′ wide, but you could easily build it anywhere from 3′ – 20′ wide or more. Simply by adding or subtracting components.

You also can just as easily make the base with drawers as I did or with shelving & cabinet doors, like I did the uppers. You will also see how to build a rigid semi-torsion box style top, in which to embed your miter saw.

And you choose the level of build that you want. from basic ply, to Baltic birch, or even hardwoods. Any of which will make a perfectly functional Extreme Miter Station.

All of this is detailed in this 4-part video series, and available in full comprehensive plans on our website. kingsfinewoodworking.com

My build:

This is a 13′ long x 7′ tall miter station containing sixteen dovetailed drawers, in four base cabinets, a bank of six upper cabinets, and a bunch of storage shelving cubby holes in the middle.

The bodies of the cabinets are mostly Baltic birch plywood. the drawer fronts are from leftover pieces of walnut plywood that I had from a kitchen job. And the sides are skinned with 1/4″ cherry plywood.

I used architect’s scale triangular aluminum rulers for the drawer pulls. I drilled and tapped them just for this project. And the upper cabinet handles are actually 3″ c-clamps.

My old miter station had a 12″ DeWalt sliding compound miter saw, that used up too much space in my shop. The dual bars that the miter head slid on forced me to keep the saw 11″ further from the shop wall than I wanted.

After researching, I found the Bosch Glide 12″ dual Bevel miter saw that could be placed practically against the wall of the shop. Because of that, I would be able to gain almost a foot of space in my shop. That’s quite a bit when the shop isn’t as big as I’d like.

Plus my old miter station was put together very quickly, because I needed something functional right away to keep up with my woodworking jobs. So it was not the prettiest looking station.

I took my time, did some research, and spent several days building this Extreme Miter Station. Something I can be proud of.

Plans are available on my website! I hope you come back and see all 4 parts of this video series.
