Sketch of the Day: Miter Saw Stand

I may have gotten a little carried away with this miter saw stand concept, the second of the Viewers’ Choice sketches.

You can clearly see the extensions that feature a fence. The extensions are supported by two gate-style arm assemblies on each side.

What’s the thing on top? It’s a hood to help contain dust. Near the back of the platform you’ll notice a hole, which is a port for a shop vacuum hose. The hood itself would create a very dark box by itself, so I created large slots to allow in light. The the inside would be covered with acrylic sheets in order to close off the hood.

The base is designed so that casters could be attached underneath.


Be sure to like Chief’s Shop on Facebook! At 1,500 likes someone will be selected to receive a box of 500 Kreg pocket hole screws.
