« Part 1: This is just the thought stage Part 2 of homemade 12" jointer series Part 3: Running for the first time! And with some pics! »

So I’l start this off by saying that I was planing on taking pictures and only remembered once we had left the house/shop for the weekend that I had forgotten.

So anyway, I cut the sides with my band saw and jig saw. They came out pretty well. I realized after holding the belt up to the side that it was way to long, so instead of putting the motor inside the body, I put it on the bottom.

I also got the parallelogram mechanism mostly put together and installed into the body.

I made the cutter head mount from baltic birch plywood and mounted it to the top:
