Good Evening LJ’s, I’m looking for suggestions on what I could possibly do with this stand. I’ve been reorganizing my shop and believe I should get rid of this because it takes up so much space. Unlike the picture, it’s not in a rectangular shape. It’s actually a trapezoidal shape that my iPhone refuses to capture correctly (smaller top, wide base). Before I put it up on CL, maybe someone has a really good idea that might change my mind; right now, I just can’t see it as I have tunnel vision to create a better flow in my shop.

Put wheels on it. Mine has my DW735 planer on it.

turn it into a DIY downdraft table. or an outfeed table.

If you break it down, it should be easy to store and out of the way… then in a year when you are needing a stand for something, you will be glad you did :)

Cheers,

I do have a mobile base for it, but looking for something other than a tool stand use. I like making my stands for space efficiency. I originally bought this for my older Craftsman miter saw which I no longer have.

That’s a good idea. I didn’t think of that, but I’ve already decided to modify my workbench to become the outfeed table.

Keep’em coming. I like the suggestions so far to make me think differently.

Ohhhh….that’s brilliant! You’re right, I could break it down and store it away for potential future use. I’ll have to see if I can put it in my overhead storage. If I can, I think we have a winner. Thanks Brad. I’m open to others if anyone else wants to chime in!

removed the top and middle shelf and put a bottom on it and a couple dividers and make a cut off cart out of it?

Have your say...
