Panel Saw (If you don't have access to one, the place you buy your wood should be able to do these cuts).
Table Saw (If you don't have one you can use a hand saw).
Drill with Bits
Square (Speedsquare or Combination square).
4 x 8 plywood (I used 1/4" but 3/8" would work great too)
1 x 6 x 10 wood board
2 or 3 2 x 4 x 8 wood studs
4 hanger bolts and nuts (use the size that fits your miter saw. Mine uses 1/2")
Nails or Screws for fastening
Step 1: Measure the Miter Saw
The width is just the width of the entire saw. You might want to include a little extra so it's easier to take the saw in and out. For mine, I used 24.5 inches.
The depth is the minimum depth of the table. It should be at least deep enough to for the base of the saw to be firmly on the table. I wanted a some extra space, so I used 18 inches.
The height is the most important measurement. Here you will measure from the base on a flat level surface to the miter saw surface (where you put your material when cutting it). To get the divider height, you can either subtract 2x the plywood thickness or just measure the height directly using some scrap material.
