I though I had it all worked out. I mean, how difficult can it be to setup a small garage workshop right? A few google searches later (and about a 1.5 months) I haven’t even purchased wood ;) I am leaning towards mobile bases, knock-down assembly tables, etc.. as I need to share the workshop with the car(s). Actually, I negotiated that I only have to share with one car (hers).
Most searches led me to this forum where I already feel like I have met many of you with your awesome shop ideas and suggestions. Trouble is, now I want to incorporate them all. Thanks a lot ;-)
Lately, I have been trying to work out where the thickness planer will go (delta 734). The darn thing is heavy and I would rather not have to keep lifting it or move it around. I’ve seen flip carts and while I do find this interesting and a top contender, I am not sure if this are the best use of space even though I can see them being used as shop carts when off duty. So what else?
While browsing through back issues of ShopNotes(#109), I noticed a cabinet which housed a Delta Planer on a full extension drawer. The intent is to extend the drawer out so that the planer is accessible and then plane away. Wow, I never thought of that. Now.. I don’t want to build that cabinet but what if I were to mount the planer on a shelf on the wall in a ready to go position. Perhaps on the forbidden wall where the car is supposed to go (for now).
Has anyone tried this? Anything I should lookout for? Anything I’m missing? Any other suggestions?
