Built a planer cart and my back its grateful. These lunch box planers arr somewhat compact but they are heavy. It's nice to get it up off the floor and ready to be used. This build was made with mostly reclaimed parts. Here is how I built it.
The materials I used were 3/4 inch plywood from a shelf I took down, 4 casters from a diy floor dolly, old flat head bolts I bought for dirt cheap, wood glue, and a couple dozen #kregscrews. I started by measure the height of my table saw and workbench so they could be used as outfeed for the planer. I measured and cut the plywood to length, attached the plywood with my #kregjig, drilled holes for the casters and bolted them on, made a couple quick shelves, added some braces, and screwed the planer to the cart. The cart has some potential storage ideas. I am thinking of adding a folding wing for a sander. Still need to complete some drawers and maybe put some paint on it. It doesnt look like much but I am grateful to get this done. If you have any questions or suggestions please comment down below. Thanks for your support.
So it is nice to know i can still do elementary school math and everything came out aligned correctly. I dabble in stained glass and am tired of having totes for glass so decided to make better use of some space under my workbench in the basement and make a glass organizer. Have to add dividers and a back still but it fits perfectly. #woodworking#shopproject#stainedglass#balticbirch#smallprojects
I was working on a project tonight and realized how much of a impact that this French cleat wall has made on the organization in my shop. If you haven’t seen the build video, go check out my YouTube, link in bio.
I noticed a few shop improvements that I needed during the roubo build. One was a tablesaw cart so I could organize my accessories and safety equipment. I looked around online and found Brad's design from "Fix this Build That". I purchased his plans and made a few modification so the chart will fit between the legs of my tablesaw.
Heres a look at the next shop project. I began putting in cabinetsz which will be the base of my miter station. It will be a slow longterm project. Ive been planning to do this since moving in, and after a year it feels good to get started.
All done ✅ Video coming out tomorrow (edit: video is posted) 👉 YouTube
Love the hardware on this flip top stand. Super easy and rock solid. Thanks for the awesome idea @fixthisbuildthat !
I really need to start buying these star knobs in bulk - I seem to be using them on everything lately!
