I finally got around to making a planer bench, so I could use the planer without crawling around on the garage floor. I also used it as an excuse to practice my mortise and tenon joints. Made it out of a chopped up 2×12, some 4×4 posts, and a bit of 3/4” plywood I had floating around. It’s riding on 4 home depot locking casters so far they grip quite well, but I haven’t tried to put anything too big through yet either. The planer on top is a Delta 22-580 I picked up used from a closing shop. So far it all seems to be working quite well.
It was a fun project overall, and I have a bin with open slots in the bottom to let chips fall through for storing the dust collector stuff when it’s hiding in the corner of the garage waiting to be used. I’m planning to put it to good use soon planing some rough cut Cypress I picked up to make an arch for out in the yard to grow some climbing roses.
