This is a great miter station with great opportunities to expand and add on. This has become an excellent addition to my shop and has increased my efficiency tenfold! I’ve added a shelving unit on the shorter section of the table and a tool wall on the longer portion.
If you’re looking for an inexpensive and very versatile miter station then I definitely recommend these plans!

I have been looking at various plans for a miter saw station build for 6 months as I designed my basement workshop. I wanted something that I would be able to build quickly, but would look well made, and not just thrown together. I also wanted to be able to have room to roll my mobile planer, joiner etc stations out of the way when not in use so that the shop did not look cluttered. I had decided at the beginning that having mobile stations allowed me to reconfigure my shop as my needs evolved. This plan fit the bill.
The only modification I made was to make both wings 60". Using my Kreg Rip & Accu cut jigs made building the tops very simple despite the fact I have a table saw.
I also was able to plumb a number of dust collection ports into the rear of the miter platform and enclose them with the hood. My wife is happy with this as dust making its way to the upper floors is no longer an issue.
If I have any suggestions, clarity in where to use the 1 1/2 vs 2 1/2 pocket screws would have been appreciated.
If there is a downside to this project it is the increased expectations from my wife to build more "things". But as Martha Stewart would say, "That a good thing!"

I built this because I didn't want something fancy. It just needed it to work and be functional. Getting my workshop in place. I made a few changes as suggested such as making it the same height as my radial arm saw so to be able to use both tables as out feed tables. This gives me plenty of room to cut long stock down to size without hunting for some kind of temporary support. I also made the miter saw section a bit wider to accommodate the "wings" the saw has. All joinery was made using pocket hole screws and my Kreg system. An enjoyable build for me especially when you consider it was all made from scrap I had on hand.

This looks like it would be an awesome Miter Saw Station setup & rewarding once built & finished.
