I needed a solution for my spindle sander as I am way too short to operate this thing on my workbench.
Picked up some cheap lumber at the BORG and tried my hand at mortise and tenon joinery. I hogged out the majority of the mortises on the drill press and finished with a chisel. After a dozen or so I felt pretty confident though the chip-out in this lumber was significant. I left the plywood panels unattached. The bottom one isn’t going anywhere and the top one removes so the sander can sit lower to slide under my table saw.

I just bought the jet jbos-5 and am now having to come up with a storage solution. This makes a lot of sense, nice job.

Thank you for sharing this. I’ve wanted to build an end table with a sink cutout of granite I’ve had. This is the perfect design for my breezeway. Being new to woodworking it’s very hard for me to come up with a design out of my own mind. If I see it I can build it. So with your permission I’d like to use this as a blueprint with some twists. Thank you.
