For my Ridgid 10" saw, I have a poor man's setup that is simply a left-over 2'x3' piece of 1/2 OSB (base) screwed to a 2"x6"x6' that is clamped into my old Workmate. On the 2x6, just outside of the OSB base, I have a box (built with 2x6 and OSB) to bring the material level with the saw table. The box is equiped with an old tape measure that allows for fast measuring, a storage area for pencils, squares, etc., and a few stop holes for repeat cuts. Can be set up in either direction, just unscrew the saw from the OSB and rotate. Has a mounting setup to hang in the shop when not in use. Best part of the whole set up is that it can be tossed in the back of the truck and I don't worry if it gets damaged.
