I have a really small shop, so everything is on wheels. When I got my jointer though, it was really heavy. I actually hurt my arm trying to lift it! It rolls up by the workbench during the night, so my dad can get his car in. The problem was, how is a kid going to pick up a jointer, and carry it across the hole shop! So I made this mobile base for my jointer, it’s made out of 3/4 plywood. And locking caster’s that can hold up to 100lb. I thought that the jointer weighs so much, it would be to heavy for the base. But the mobile base holds the jointer just fine. I used glue and screws to assemble the base, you really have to use glue and screws, not brad nails. It turned out great, really easy to make too.
