Introduction: Miter Saw Stand

I bought a new miter saw and immediately started making a stand with it.  Sort of an M.C. Escher kind of thing went on.  I looked at a whole lot of examples on here and other places, and pulled them all together to make my own design. 

I have some 32" wings fold out with some door hinges.  The genius part (I know I'm too humble) is how I secured the brace pieces.  I cut the brace at 45* angles and then screwed down other pieces with 45* angles to hold everything together.  I screwed little wooden pieces on either side to hold the brace in, except on the stand part where I left one side open to remove it.  (Check the pictures cause that was as confusing as all get-out)

Anyway as far as dimensions use the saw itself to judge, but my top shelf is 16" x 20" and everything is set at 34 1/4" high because that's the height of my table saw, so now the wings can by an outfeed table or side support with some finnagling.

Nice, I suppose I would have put it on casters but it is probably relatively easy to move around as is?

No its actually not. Not because of the weight but because there's no where to grab it. Casters will be added or handles. Thanks for the comment!

Very good idea, I am thinking to copy it.
