I recently finished my planer stand. It came out slightly off. Its a tad crooked, and one of the tables isnt flat across, so I had to pop out the ply.. but that could just be warped.

But Its better than making a mess of my workbench, and much better than working on the floor.

Without further adù here is my bench:

Looks good and functionable, but you may want to think about adding the ability to adjust the infeed and outfeed table height/angle if you get any snipe. I am big on function over form for these types of machine improvements. Let us know how it works once you get a chance to make some wood chips 8-).

I have found that I get minimal snipe, as it is. But I may look into it. I didnt have the hardware on hand, nor did I want to go to the borg to get it.

Nice job noob… if you read some recent posts in other forums you’ll see there’s quite a discussion going on about heaping praise on members when constructive critisism is warranted. With that in mind, I’ll add the following tongue in cheek:

Never use SPF in a shop project. It shows you’re a cheap scavenger.
Where are the wheels to roll the thing around? You need wheels noob!
Is that thing hinged? It’s gotta be hinged!
Did you make an infeed table? eh?

P.S. 129 posts in 30 days is excessive. You need to spend less time at this site and more time correcting your deficiencies!

SPF? I didnt coat it in sunscreen!?

It has an infeed: I said you have to click the image to see the whole thing…

Too many posts! I have been sick recently, so I like to keep my eye on this site. Been home alot recently, due to me having the damned-est stomache…

SPF=Spruce/Pine/Fir which is the grading for construction lumber.

“tongue in cheek” – Wikipedia “Tongue-in-cheek is the action of poking one’s cheek with the tongue inside the mouth. The phrase can be used as a figure of speech to imply a statement… and not to be taken at face value.”

i.e. it’s not intended to be taken seriously…

I mistakenly typed tongue-in-geek… dont even ask me what I came up with!

Ahh I see… But hey… it represents me.. I am cheap… since I have to make a meager budget work..

Maybe this year Illl be able to find a second job, for the school year, since this hobby doesnt support itself… yet…
