Mitre Saw Table substitude.

I am a wood working enthusiest (amateur) and in the process of building a workbench for general use. I just purchased a new 10 inch Mitre Saw that I will use occasionally on this bench top.

The bench is not recessed for the saw so I am thinking of constructing two blocks, 3 1/2 X 10"X 18 inches long to clamp to either side of the bench when cutting on the Mitre Saw.

Has anyone done anything like this or could offer some helpful information? Thanks

That's a good solution

Make the 2 blocks on a plywood base that you can clamp on the bench. Another helpful add on would be an extended fence that runs all across the saw and the blocks. It will reduce your crosscut capacity 3/4" or so, but it will be helpful cutting longer lengths accurately, if used with a stop..

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

I was going to construct the blocks out of 3/4 inch pine ribs with 1/4 lauan top and bottom. Should be light while providing support??

Will consider a fence.

Your decision to use blocks is a common practice.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?

My saw is at the left end of the bench next to a door that opens, blocks on right side, hired man outside the door on left.
