Miter Saw Cart

Make 2, Week 2

I’ve had this Craftsman miter saw for many years. It doesn’t have a fancy rail/joint for larger cuts, but it works well enough for making straight cuts and miters. It came with a metal stand that was falling apart, so I wanted to create a new cart. Also, I wanted to put it on wheels for my plans to make a modular workshop. The idea is I can tuck this in the corner and wheel out it out when needed.

Eventually, I want to make some drawers for this cart for extra storage. I’ll add the sides when I figure out how I want to build the drawers. I also left a little overhang for clamping. I bolted saw bolted on to the table top.

I’m thinking of removing two wheels and extending those two legs. I’m playing around with the wheel barrow idea to have a mobile cart, but still stable on swivel casters. Plus, it will free up a couple of casters for another project.
