I’m just curious as to the solutions others have come up with for this problem:
You’re standing in front of your jointer or planer. You have 26 pieces of wood that you need to process. They are sitting on the infeed table. You pick up your first piece, then take the other 25 off and set them…. where?
I don’t have any horizontal surface near my planer or jointer and it makes it difficult to maintain a good workflow if I’m doing a lot of something. I’m considering building some type of cantilever rack or shelving with two levels, which would sit right behind the jointer or planer, above the bed height, so that I can stack up a bunch of stock on the first shelf and then put the processed piece on the second shelf. Once everything has been run through, I can start pulling from shelf #2 and putting processed pieces into shelf #1.
If anyone has pictures of something they’ve built like this, I’d love to see it, for inspiration.
