The wife has authorized the purchase of a hollow-chisel mortiser. It will either be the Steel City unit or the Jet unit. I have not made up my mind yet. Has anyone here got an opinion one way or the other?
Well, the real subject of the post is to see what innovative table systems you guys and gals have built around your hollow-chisel moritsers. My first project with it will be the boys bunk bed. There are going to be quite long pieces, so I at least figure I will build some extension tables.
If you have anything innovative built around your mortiser, head out to the shop, take a picture of it and post it for me. I really do need some ideas.
My plan right now is to build me a new router table and make room in the base for storing a lot of stuff. Right now I am planning on storing the mortiser in the cabinet, but that might change. I know for sure that the table will be used as a multi-tool top. It will mainly be a router table, but it will also serve as the table that I use the mortiser and my bench-top sanders on. It should be a really cool table. I just gotta get out in the shop and build it.
Thanks for the info, and have a great evening,
