Chop Saw Station

Inspired from Ryobi Nation, I started watching youtube woodworking stations. I stumbled across Jay Bates. HIs version of a chop saw station was amazing. All that storage and function. I started my version (without solid plans) in late June, and finally finished with the cubbies yesterday. I have to say I'm pleased but 1/2 of the storage is still empty. With a ton of Christmas gift hours to come in the next few weeks, that will have to wait. I finally rebuilt my radial arm saw stand. It was an old bathroom cabinet that had a top that OSHA would not have liked. The base was the same build as the chop saw station. The new top is now large enough and I have adjusted the feet to match the height of the chop saw station. I finally got my Chicago Bears drawer pulls cut and put on most of the drawers.

    • I bet I watched the Jay Bates video series 3 times before I decided to go for it. With putting in my limited weekend hours it took a long time. The dovetailed drawers added time and strength. I took over my shop years ago and just used the existing cabinets. I'm so glad I finally have made at least part of it my own. Can't wait to tie in the radial arm. I don't use it often but when I do it's usually a 4 x 4 or larger dado.

  • Looks like an awesome shop, I am planning something for my shop but size is a problem for me.

    • Downsize it. You don't have to make it that big. I have seen ones that use a pull up section to give it the length.

  • I think you are capable of making one. Just know if you make that many drawers and don't just butt joint them, it will be time consuming. I still haven't filled even half of the drawers. I think I'm going to have to label the drawers for a while at least.

  • GREAT JOB FOR A SECOND I THOUGHT IT WAS JAY BATES SHOP BUT THEN I SAW THE ROUND KNOBS HE AS RED WING KNOB...AWSOME JOB

  • Do you have a fairly large shop? I've wanted to so something similar but the space I'm setting up is only 11 x 22 and the projects plans on that from Jay seem enormous.

  • I can't tell from the pics, is there dust collection?
    By kbakek, on October 6, 2017

  • What? No Red Wings drawer pulls? Seriously, though, I knew where you got the idea when I saw it. Good recreation of a great plan! Congrats.
