Extension wings on the miter saw make cutting long stock a breeze. My shop-made wings install and knock down in seconds and they’re as light as feathers. My secret? The wings are made from a hollow-core door. After ripping the door to width, I pushed the internal honeycomb pieces back and glued new pine side rails between the faces. Then I installed swing-down legs for stability. Steel bed-rail fasteners hold the wings level with the saw table. After engaging the fastener, I drop a nail behind the hook to lock the wing in place.
