Thicknesser Cart (My first post)

I took up woodwork after a life changing injury and Lumberjocks was the main inspiration in the decision. It has taken me a while to get used to making things and this isn’t perfect but it doesn’t stop me being proud of it.
I was gifted the thicknesser by a joiner in return for working on his compound archery bow and fantastic as it is, there simply wasn’t space for it in my 13×7 workshop. The design was found on here and other places, the only real difference was that I reamed out some M12 nuts to act as bushings for the M12 threaded rod that the assembly rotates on, which seemed to make more sense than relying on the wood.
Anyway, I now have another workbench top to make and a router lift before I can start making some real stuff.

Great start! 13×7 meters? or feet? I hope it meters. I have 20×20 feet to play in. It gets tight on bigger projects, but a very nice size for the smaller ones. Every is close at hand.

Nice work and will serve you very well for years. Posting your first project is always an achievment and a sense of accomplishment, you should be proud of your work. I bet you still stand gazing at it in the shop and tell yourself, “I built that?”

Well done.

That looks like a handy cart, and heavy-duty too!

Nice job.
