Simple Chop Saw Stand.
1 Attachment(s)
So Recently, I found myself needing a place to cut things that is stationary, and ready to go. So I thought I should build a stand for a chop saw. I didn't want to use my big chop saw, because I move that around from inside to outside so often that the stationary saw I wanted, wouldn't be so stationary. So to make this story short, I decided to buy a relatively inexpensive chop saw 10" and built a stand for it out of skid wood. The wood was free, and the saw was about $130 bucks. I planed the top boards, but everything else is just raw. Its so handy, Now I need to finish some projects, so I can have my 'space' back. I plan to put this against a wall kinda out of the way, but always there and ready to cut.
This might be something that others can do for their chop saw, so I figure I would share the project.

That is a good looking stand Nat. Might have to put something together like for my chop saw.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, the wood i used was scrap wood from pallets at work, so I basically made something from nothing. Well that chop saw I bought too, because I didn't want to mount my dewalt one. just something to make quick cuts. I found myself having to make room everytime I needed a simple cut with the chop saw. So I fixed that problem. The only wood that I cared much about was the wood used to guide the wood to be cut, those I planed and set level with the saws cutting surface.
