How to Set Up a Jobsite Cut Station for Framing

A safe, efficient jobsite cut station is necessary for framing contractors to accurately lay out and assemble walls and other components of their projects.

The right jobsite cut station allows framers to complete projects with quality and accuracy while reducing waste. Faster production — as long as you’re not sacrificing quality and safety — improves profitability and helps ensure customer satisfaction.

 

Logistics of Framing Efficiency on the Jobsite

 

Framing contractors need to produce expedient and accurate cuts while ensuring the safety of their crews and others on the jobsite. 

 

The first priority for efficiency is locating your cut station as close as possible to the lumber. This helps minimize your steps and the need to move materials. But you also want a jobsite cutting station that sets up quickly (so that you can get to work as soon as possible) and tears down just as quickly — ideally doable by one person. 

 

A good cutting station setup will also help you combine steps, such as measuring, marking and cutting. Finally, getting your miter saw on the same level as the stand will help eliminate the problematic issues of binding and dropped boards.

 

How to Set Up an Efficient Jobsite Cut Station

 

Framers can be notorious for improvising their cutting stations on the jobsite. Two sawhorses and a sheet of plywood (or plywood placed directly on the ground) is a common practice, as is trying to make cuts on a stack of lumber. 

 

But to get to that all-important level of accuracy and efficiency, what framing contractors really need is a proper jobsite cutting station setup

 

You can find lots of ideas and even plans for building your own jobsite cut station, but do you really want to invest that much time and effort in a makeshift solution? Besides, a site-built DIY cutting station won’t survive for your next project. If it does, you’ll have to take the time to disassemble it, pack up, transport it to the next job and start all over again.
