First of all I want to thank many of you for the friendly welcom you have given me. And then I will be brief because actually it is a very small and simple project, but perhaps it can be useful for someone.

You can watch the building process on this video:

I still need a large stationary belt sander but is a future project for me. For now, this is a very simple solution to do and that has helped me a lot at time to work. The main thing this stand is that it can be used in 3 positions, horitzontally, vertically and dead flat. As you will see in the video, the results makes the job easier and this plataform it’s convert in a tool/resource very useful in the workshop, at least for me. Although on the video and photos you can see clearly, I leave the list of materials that I have used:

- Plywood 70×70 cm

- 4 L brackets

- 13 screws of 3.5×40 mm

- Screws for the hinges and L brackets

- 2 bolts of 8×120 mm

- 2 small hinges.

- Linseed oil to finishing

That’s all for now, it will be up to the next project, thank you for coming here.
