Tool Stand

Recently I upgraded my dust collection manifold to have a six inch branch to the table saw, blog entry, then I needed a tool stand with clearance for the six inch duct underneath and tall enough to position the planer bed above the neighboring router table and jointer.

The new manifold:

Dimensions: 37 H x 24×24 inches.

  • Russian Pine posts and rails
  • MDF panels for the side and back
  • Baltic Birch – 1/2 ply
  • Red Oak – drawer faces 1/2 planks, book matched
  • Red Oak – 3/4 ply top
  • White Oak – banding on top
  • Iron bars – 1/8 for riser, leveling feet
  • Stain – Minwax semi transparent true black
  • Shellac – Zinsser Clear
  • Polyurethane – Minwax wipe-on
  • Slides – Center Line over travel, 100 lbs. rating, see main picture 4.
  • Sliding Dovetails for the rails:
  • Dovetails for the drawer boxes:
  • Custom iron riser / leveler feet from 1/8 bar stock:

Thanks for looking. Comments and questions are welcomed and appreciated.

Outstanding. This cabinet may last longer than the tools it will support!

dust collection has nothing to do with it – you just wanted to show off your clean shop and a darn nice router stand, great Job
