Why would you want a dedicated miter stand? Because you know you’re guilty of this… you put your miter saw on your workbench to make some cuts, then move the miter saw to the floor, so you can assemble your project. Then you realize you cut one of the pieces too short (you should have done a test piece first!), but your project is clamped on your workbench, so now you’re bent over cutting on the floor. Yup, we’ve all done it.
After you have a workbench, I would say a dedicated miter saw stand would be the next upgrade for your shop. No matter if you have a dedicated workshop or a space you can only use temporarily for DIY projects, I think one of these space-saving, easy to make DIY miter saw stands would be a great addition to your shop. With the exception of one, they are all mobile, making it convenient to wheel out when you need it and store it when you don’t.
