My work as a remodeler requires that I carry a wide variety of tools and materials to the job, so space in the truck is at a premium. That’s why I came up with the knock-down saw stand in the drawing. The stand is constructed of 2×4 legs that have been connected in pairs by way of 2×4 crossbars. Screws and glue hold them together. The crossbars are notched in the middle where they engage one another.
I mounted my portable saw on a 3/4-in. plywood base that has a big hole in its middle to evacuate sawdust. The saw is held fast to the stand during use by dowels. A pair of 3/8-in. holes along the front edge of the base corresponds to the dowels in the front legs of the saw stand.
