Default Norm!!!

Here is what I built several years ago. I got the plans from the new yankee workshop web site. There is a copy of the video on youtube. I'm not allowed to post URL's but you can google Norm Chop Saw Station and find it.

Welcome to the forum Lenny .
That’s a nice find , thanks for posting . I like the stop he built . It may be overkill , but I’m wondering if a guy installed a Wixey digital gauge on it and a measuring strip?

The same station also has my router table. The last point that I can think of is how the saw is used. I break down rough lumber for all of my projects and typically will have an 8' to 12' length of wood to break down. So with that said, my miter station is 24' long. It has 8' to the right of the saw 16' to the left. Underneath is storage for the vast majority of my hand power tools. The wall behind the station is used for clamp storage and hand tools. It also has drawers for my router bits, (and all things router related) and drawers for my drum sander paper. Here are a few pictures. I can't get the entire station in one picture so these pictures show right to left. I have been in this shop now for 4 years, and really like this station. The only thing I wish it had is more drawers, that is on the "to do" list and maybe I will get to it someday. I don't know why the garbage can is there under the saw, I have a scrap bin that fits there it must have been full and rolled to the wood stove when I took the pictures.
Hey, Bob!

I don't even have a wall that is 24' long. I think 22' is my longest wall. I know what you are talking about tho. I have not used my miter saw in a long time but if I had it where I could get to it easier I would use it more. I have to pull it out hook up the dust collection and still can't cut a long board.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

Rick, I made a very simple but handy stop-block for my RAS fence. I'd like to post a pic but it's too darn(mild version) cold out. I got the idea from a magazine 'tips' section.

It's -17C (2F) degrees here - think I'll go into hibernation!

Makes me wish I had more space around my saw. I've seen a couple of designs for fold-down extensions that appeal, but don't offer the same kind of support a long rail would. Guess I need a larger shop. And as me 'ol Ma used to say, "and the poor devils in Hell want ice water."
