I scoured the internet for free plans or ideas. After doing some research I finally got a good idea of how to proceed with the stand. During the building process we ran into a lot of problems and ultimately learned a lot about wood working and learned a few tricks that might help me in the future building of my own miter saw stand some day.
We decided to make a stand that had a shelf for clamps and any other tools needed, as well as a scrap wood bin. I had seen this bin in used in a shop notes version of a miter saw stand. I did not want to buy the plans for this miter saw so I went by the pictures i could find. This is my attempt at making a version of this miter saw.
***Because of our lack of wood working experience I will not make this instructable a step by step version. Rather a show and tell of important things we learned and how the stand turned out. I am sorry for our lack of experience, I am 24 years old and hope to some day be skilled enough to make nice looking furniture. It is experiences like this that teach and humble the inexperienced.
*** Please be careful when using power tools and sharp objects. It is good to experiment and learn from doing but please read instruction first.
