no previous part Part 1 of Jointer and Planer Fliptop series Part 2: working on wing and added wheels »

so here is my latest project for my 2car garage organization purpose and saving lots of real estate.

my lunchbox planer & rockwell 6” jointer on a fliptop with folding 4 foot adjustable infeed and 4 foot adjustable outfeed table.
this is after glue’ing up the structure frame of laminating dimensioned 2×4’s with 42 double floating tenons. this is a dry fit of the rigid 13” planer. i already dry fitted the jointer. so far, everything is coming together. i used 4’ 1/2” MDF torsion box tables for the infeed and outfeed tables.

Organizing and making more room… and THAT my friends, is what it’s all about!

I have my planer set on a cabinet that I originally built for my RAS. I need to put those folding wing extensions on it.

i’m 1/2 way done with this project. the planer in picture currently sits on fliptop table where the jointer will reside on the other side. and still gotta afix the folding wings, add wheels
