I decided to make this nice stand to mount my bench grinder and my Work Sharp system.

Awhile back my son gave me this small table that was to be thrown away at his work, For about I year I had junk piled on it. Since I was in the process of making my shop a better functioning shop I came up with this idea.

From the floor up I used a piece of 3/4” plywood with casters on it. On top of it I built this small cabinet with drawers. Placing frame of table over to I attached to lower base. On top I made this 20” round table to mount my tools on. In the center of the top I used a 1/2” carriage bolt to allow top can rotate 360 degrees.

To use either tool, I simply rotate tools around to be in front of me. The lower drawers with allow me to store tools and all my sharpening products.

Thanks again Mel. I just have a small one car garage in a manufactured home. I need to plan every move carefully.

Those are the kind of important tools, that somehow don’t get into the general planning for sq/ft space in a shop. Looks like a good bang for the footprint used solution. Great job.

This might be the creative solution I need for my grinder and buffer. I might need some sort of locking pin tho. Sometimes I get carried away on the buffer.

Also is that a Mark V i see in the background? I have a Model 10ER sitting in some sort of restorative state at the moment

Hey Sansoo22,

Yes that is a Mark V. Bought it about 10 years ago with the band saw, jigsaw and other misc. items for $450.00. About a couple years ago I upgraded to the new motor. I love it. It made all the difference. Can run lower and faster speeds, don’t have to ramp the speed up and down with crank. All I have to do is turn on and off. Well worth the upgrade.
