Similar to my first workbench, I needed to create a 2nd.
A couple of differences though:
- Meant to hold a miter saw
- 2nd table’s height was designed so that with a miter saw on top, the top of the miter saw is flush with the top of my first workbench
- Table dimensions are smaller
- Added a lower shelf
Here’s the basic design:
- Same basic materials as my first workbench
- Used 8 Strong-Tie connectors this time though
- Originally got a 4′ x 8′ sheet of plywood from the first workbench, so re-used leftovers for the top and shelf
- Lower shelf is against the lower crossbars
- Meant to hold a shop-vac, with the intention of hooking it up to my miter saw
- Added middle crossbars, similar to the plans of that inspired my design, but did not use that for the shelf support.
- Long bars only have 2 screws into the brackets on left and right sides (none on the inside). This is to allow the bars to be removed easily for access.
- Used pronged tee nuts and associated hardware to secure miter saw
