6 DIY Space-Saving Miter Saw Stand Plans for a Small Workshop

December 2, 2015 by Scott - Saws on Skates

Hey there friends! Today I’m continuing with my series on setting up a small workshop. We started few weeks ago when we looked at workbench ideas for a small workshop. This week we’ll look at 5 mobile space-saving miter saw stand plans, plus a bonus stationary stand. Each would be perfect for a small workshop. Looking for more small workshop setup ideas? Then check out how to make your tools mobile and maximize workshop space.

Why would you want a dedicated miter stand? Because you know you’re guilty of this… you put your miter saw on your workbench to make some cuts, then move the miter saw to the floor, so you can assemble your project. Then you realize you cut one of the pieces too short, but your project is clamped on your workbench, so now you’re bent over cutting on the floor. Yup, we’ve all done it.

After you have a workbench, I would say a dedicated miter saw stand would be the next upgrade for your shop. No matter if you have a dedicated workshop or a space you can only use temporarily for DIY projects, I think one of these space-saving, easy to make DIY miter saw stands would be a great addition to your shop. With the exception of one, they are all on wheels, making it convenient to wheel out when you need it and store it when you don’t.
