With the help of my brother and my nephew, I want to present to you all My new Planer Table! We managed to start and complete this in one day. It is made from birch plywood. It has adjustable shelf, a power strip for plugging in routers, and sanders and raised panel doors. We also drilled peg holes for removable pegs to use when I need to sand pieces on the table top. And, of course because it was built in Louisiana it is adorned with fleur de lis.

1 day? Did that include the design part? I thought not. :D Great accomplishment, nice looking, and very functional. I’ve been to Orlando fleur de but I never seen Lis.

Very nice cabinet- looks like a formal dining room piece. nice build and great detail! That is one slick idea to have it flip up. Who says a planer cannot be stored upside down- there’s no oil in it!! That is thinking outside the box!!Thanks for sharing with us ll!!

unisaw- for the piviot, I went to the big box store and got two aluminum rods of different sizes. One fit snug down in the other. I recessed them about 2 to 3 inches into the end pieces and ran it completely through the center piece. The outside larger piece rotates on the inside smaller piece.

Maveric777, the only reason it was completed in one day is because all three of us were working on it and my brother and nephew are both cabinet makers with all the right tools. They do this kind of thing every day all day. If it were just me, it would have taken a full 40 hour week to complete and not looked anywhere near this nice.
