How can you get an entire planer in the top step? (Also kidding.) Fascinating project!

Nice job, Phil. I have a feeling that you’re one of those woodworkers with high quality cabinetry in your workshop. Post some pictures. And welcome to Lumberjocks. You’ll like it here some much, you’ll be killing too much time on the ‘net like the rest of us.

Great idea and execution, Bravo! But where’s the loft access? OUCH!
