I am planning some mobile bases and will be using Douglas fir that has been killed to about 3×3.25 and was wondering what the strongest joint will be. I am thinking of using a lap joint, bridle joint, or doing a loose tenon to join the frame together. This will be for my CI base Delta jointer and I will be attaching casters with a leveling foot for stability. This will all be attached to some heavy angle iron and then bolted to the frame. I will also be rounding the corners to match the curve on the cast iron base. I will also be making a similar frame for my bandsaw if this works out well.
The reason I am making a base is because I have most of the supplies and it is another project to work on some skills. Thanks for the input.
