Not really a wood project,the only piece of wood is the 7’ disc. I used it a lot when building the plywood castle . The 1.5 cv motor comes from a discarded lawn mower. Ugly but effective…

Cool – paint it green and spry “General” on it.
Did you do all the welding, too?

Sadly the table is not adjustable, it was over my skills,so the T -track is a good idea.I’ve to think at.
