Limited space+ 90lb “portable” planer =need for stand. Doubles as a small outfeed table for the TS. Made of 3/4 birch ply and stained with clear polyurethane. Thanks to the many other LJ’s that have done similar projects and provided me with the inspiration!

That is pretty sweet how you made the level of the planer lower than the level of the out-feed table surface. That’s a great twist on the idea, and seems like an attempt to use the table saw surface as an out-feed table for the planer. That will definitely go in my store of “great ideas I have to steal someday.”

Great job. I like the one I made. I put my mitersaw on the otherside.

Great work. I think I’m going to add 2 Drawers to mine now that the tools are permanent. Thx for the post.

Handsome !

And SMART to make it do dual-duty.

I realized that my new workbench is about 2” shorter than my TS top. Luckily, the TS is on a stand that can be lowered enough to make the double-duty thing happen for me, too !

What a clever space saver! Good idea. I’m always impressed when I see such space saving ideas. A workshop is always too small. Thanks for sharing this project.

Great looking stand. How did you solve the problem of the allen wrench/magnet tool falling when the stand is in the “storage” position?

Hey Dustin; I have a drawer where I keep all my various adjustment tools for the power tools; is way less annoying than having the wrench fall out every time I flipped the stand over!
