To save space in my shop, I built a table that places the planer over the jointer. The jointer is on a mobile base and I slide it out as needed. The setup works beautifully, and takes about the same floor space as a combo machine.

You wouldn’t have to do something quite so long (about 90” in my case) if you have shorter jointer, but the width of the 8” jointer on a mobile base is about the same as the 13” planer. The height of the planer bed is about 52”. And that planer needs infeed & outfeed tables to control snipe, so I built them onto the table, solving another problem.
