    Tool Stand

    If space is limited you might consider a tool stand with a rotating top where two or three tools can be used on the same stand.

    There is a nice design at
    I have an old video arcade I cut down to waist hight and made a plywood top for. Insde the base I keep my planer, miter saw and router table. Eventually I would like to make a rtiangular top that would rotate with each tool mounted on it's own facet.

      Planer stand options

      I've seen a couple of variations in WoodSmith over the years. I remember one that was a "flip-top" that CanadianScroller described. There was also one that was a dedicated planer stand (on wheels to get it out of the way when not in use). If you're interested in either of these let me know and I'll dig out the issue number.

      . . . because each piece will be someone's heirloom someday.

        Planer table

        I have a set of plans for the planer table I built a few months ago. Just something I drew up for a portable table. Works great. Send me an email if interested. [email protected]

            I often resize just to fit the size of the wood I have on hand. I agree this is a no win situation because of the various software, hardware differences plus the skill level of us, the end users. Even providing the patterns in a digitized format will no fix this because of the reasons I already mentioned....

            John your original post is a valid question. It is a simple thing to put in the original scale assuming that it was on the original drawing. As a minimum the size of the material required can be stated, although that has been a confusion for folks that have built the clock projects. I field a lot of...

            Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

            I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

            This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

            I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

            Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

            How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...
