it seems as if i never take the time to build anything nice for my self. everytime I am doing a personal project i just cant stop thinkng about how much money im NOT making! so all my tables are simple and plain but they get the jobs done. I have some bowling alley lanes laying around so figured i would make a smaller table for my planer.

watch for nails as they tend to contain a lot of metal !!

Is say watch out for oil/wax contamination on that wood. It might make pieces that come into contact with the table top unfinishable..

I’ve got a small bench with the top made out of the part of the alley the pins go. I can second the lots of metal and nails bit. That’s what cheap carbide blades are for. Can’t say I’ve ever had any problems with oil/wax contamination. I guess it might be prudent to wipe in down with some kind of de-greaser and re-seal it with something. On the upside most economical source for large chunks of hard maple I’ve ever come across. I think just the front part and the rear part of the lanes are maple, I think the middle part which doesn’t have the ball dropping on it or the pins banging around is something softer.

Nice looking table.

No oil on these they have been sitting for about 20 years. As for nails…yes lots of them. Cheap blade works just fine.

Off topic – sort of -

How do you like your DeWalt 735 planer? I’ve been using a Delta lunchbox for awhile now and want to upgrade

I keep wanting to get a nice “stationary” planer like a Delta DC-33 type (2hp, 13”) but I like the ease of disposable knives and a “portable” planer

What’s your opinion?

I like it. Plenty of power a lot of snipe I’m going to make a whole different feed table for it to eliminate that. But it’s easy to wrk on (change blade,adjust) I give it a 9 out of 10. I picked mine up for 200 bucks brand new! Someone didn’t know how much it was worth!
