I use my miter saw for everything from rough sizing long boards to cutting fine molding. The compact size makes it easy to move to a job site, but the saw table is too small to support long work pieces.
My solution is the modular workstation you see here. It's made up of three sections and goes together in seconds to create a sturdy, versatile cutting station up to 17' long. And each section is lightweight so you can set it up anywhere from your garage to the backyard. This woodworking plan appeared in ShopNotes magazine No. 118.
