When I first built the stand I decided on making it a little taller then the plans to add a drawer. That’s still in process. As well as a drawer I have stared making extension wings for use when the miter saw is being used.
The extensions have a fence on them which makes them unusable with the planner, that is if I mounted the planner side ways. I’m not concerned with that because when I use the planner its usually quick (in – out) and do not leave lumber on it. Besides I have roller stands to accommodate.
Then extensions slip over the top and have a adjusting bolt for leveling. Here’s a picture. Bear in mind they are not complete. There will be gussets on both sides of each extension, tapering to the end. I mortised a piece of flat bar into the side of the stand for the leveling screw to push against.
I could have used a smaller piece of metal but that’s what I had on hand.
Here’s a link to the original post of the stand: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/39814
The next time I post it will be with a finished drawer and both extensions in place.
I plan to make some type of hanger for the extensions to hang on the side of the case when not in use.
