A Great Way to Organize a Miter Saw
My miter saw sits on a metal stand, and because of the way it is designed, there is no place to set a pencil or a tape measure. After working on a project using rain gutters as a planter, I had quite a bit of the gutter left to create these DIY organizers for a miter saw stand. The organizers fit perfectly in the spaces on the stand to the left and right of the saw, and do not interfere with any boards I need to cut! These organizers work well with any tool to keep smaller accessories nicely organized!
- Length of vinyl rain gutter
- Two sets of end caps
- Saw of your choice to cut the gutter (<– affiliate link!)
I measured the spaces on the left and right of the saw, and used my miter saw to cut the gutter pieces to fit. I didn’t want the organizers to fit too tight and wanted to make sure I could get them out easily to dump the sawdust out!
I added the end caps to each side of the gutter pieces. The caps will fit snugly depending on the style though if they don’t a bit of hot glue can be used.
Then set the pieces in place on the stand!
It is that easy!! The organizers make a great place to keep my pencil sharpener safe since I was always losing it before, as well as a place to set my pencil and tape measure while I am working. I keep extra pencils in there, too!
The organizers would also be handy secured to the stand of a table saw (with bolts or heavy magnets) or under a work table. The organizers can also be spray painted, if so desired.
