This is how I have upgraded my mitersaw station.
Made out of 3/4"-thick MDF, this 16 drawers 8'-long X 18"-deep X 8"-high nest raise up the station at a confortable height for my 6' tall person, providing at the same time plenty of new storage space close to my working area.
The simpliest and cheapest step was adding a 8' sub-base (3/4" MDF) and a sub-fence (5/16" HDF), eliminating any splinter when crosscutting, and giving great support for lumber.
I admit that by having more than one mitersaw, I can reduce considerably the number of setups.
