This is the first project in my new shop and also my first attempt at mortise and tennon joinery. I decided that I needed a stand for my planner and built this cabinet. It is 37” x 40” by 28”. The base is built with 2×4 common stock that I milled to the desired size. once assembled the joints were “pinned” with 1/4” dowel as well as glue. The top is some hard wood that I had around the shop. I am not sure what species it is I am awful with identifying wood. The base is delicatly covered with 3 coats of the best Krlon spray on stain I could buy. The top has 4 coats of brushed on poly. It is very strong and stable. I tested buy standing on top and jumping. Not the safest method but was very effective test of how strong my joints are. Any comments or suggestions greatly appreciated.
