Build a Simple Miter Saw Stand
This simple miter saw stand solution is great for tight spaces and even tighter budgets.
Just because you don’t have the space or the budget for a dedicated miter saw stand doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice accuracy in your crosscuts. In this Fast Fix video, Fine Woodworking contributor John White shows you how to build a stowable stand that gets the job done and doesn’t eat up shop space.
White uses MDF and a few hardwood scraps to produce a solid base for the saw, which rests atop a standard workbench. On either side of the saw, he uses a set of custom-built supports which carry the stock during cutting. When not in use, the components are easy to store away in a cabinet.
