Well thanks to fellow LJ Ianwater and his project of the same item: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/37540
I decided to build the same stand.
As I stated in a comment to his when he posted. I was two days away from building a dedicated planer stand.
I had the same plan but forgot about it until I saw his.
The only thing I’ve done different then the plan is to add 5” to the height in order to add a drawer down below. Also instead of gluing the top plate together and using lag bolts for the machines, I used 3/8” T-nuts for mounting the machines and screwed the plates together as well as adding a center rib for strength.
I intend to make removable wings that can be added when the miter saw is being used and stored by hanging on the side when not in use or the planer is up.
At any rate I love the stand and the mobility (not to mention the extra room and back saving) it affords.
The plan is from “The Complete Small Shop” book from Wood Smith/Shop Notes.
Update: The stand is now complete. I’ve added a drawer and extensions for use with the miter saw. The extensions have a level adjusting screw and store nicely on the side of the stand. If I do anything else it will be painting it.
