Made with birch plywood and oak trim. The planer is bolted to a sandwich of plywood with an oak lattice in the middle. I wanted to countersink the bolts so I could have a work surface but I didn’t plan for positioning to be through the interior oak. I felt that if I countersunk (about 3/8”) into the plywood it might not have been strong enough to hold the planer for the long haul so the washers and bolts protruded from the plywood. I added one more piece of plywood with holes countersunk for the ends of the bolts, giving me a flat surface to work on. The plan I took from a FWW shops issue.
