Default Miter saw station

I am planning on building a miter saw work station, I have a double beveled miter saw, thoughts on would you build an extension on one side or both sides of the saw?

there's your answer but you are severely limited to length of material...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Stick....

Cutting mitered trim for a toy chest lid tonight, i needed 34" on each side of the blade to be able to run continuous grain. 6' total (if it's blocked by walls at each side) would be a concern to me. Squaring off the end of an 8' or 9' board is something i do a lot as well. I could live with 3' of normal cutting on each side, but i'd want at least 9' available on one side (the right for me--just feels right) for every now and then.

I think I have about 40 inches on each side. The good part is i can open the garaage door and have unlimited length on the left side.

How about you? Are you against a wall?

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

Trim comes in 14' and 16' lengths...that's my minimum infeed, on the left side for me. In my garage the right side is the overhead door opening. In the new layout...the East wall is 27'L so the 16'+ point is where the SCMS goes. Everything else will just have to work around that.
