Mitersaw or Radial-arm Saw Support

Radial-arm support

I've seen pictures of the radial-arm saw in the WOOD magazine shop that appears to be placed on a stand between two cabinets. Do you have plans for this stand?

Brad, we haven't drawn up detailed plans for this saw support. However, it's a fairly simple item to build. It consists of a shelf, slightly larger than the base of the radial-arm saw, placed between two commercially-made cabinets. The top of the saw table support rests flush with the top of the cabinets. This creates a continuous shelf for supporting long workpieces. The drawing below gives the dimensions of the saw shelf and saw/cabinet top in our shop. The saw top includes a replaceable section in the center for saw kerfs.
