Snort. It looked like such a nice job, I read it twice, trying to see why you thought it sucked. I finally figured out why and I bet it does. Nice job.

What kind of vacuum do you need to make that work?

I must admit when I first saw this I thought “sucks”, looks fine to me. Maybe you don’t like bending over and picking up the planer, I know for me that used to suck. But after a closer look I see what you mean. It really does suck, but in a good way. Nice job there Kiefer. By the way, I found an old microwave cart on casters for my planer, now it just blows.

Very nice and clean. I like the design.

One question, though. On the bottom of your router compartment, is that a Rorschach test? My first impression is that of flying monkeys.

Very well thought out. Incorporting the downdraft table was a great idea.

Nice job and well done. I get tired of picking up my planer as well. I made a flip stand for it, man I love that thing. I have been meaning to make a sanding station to hook into my dust collector. Thx for sharing.

The framing for the top is inovative. Less is more? Wondering about vibration as there are baffles?

YES THAT DEWALT PLANER IS ONE OF THE FUTURE PROJECTS
I ALWAYS HAD MY PLANER UNDER THE WING OF MY UNISAW AND FIND IT VERY HANDY
WITH A HELPER BECAUSE THE WING CAN BE USED FOR STACKING AND SORTING OF THE LUMBER
AND I CAN SIT DOWN FOR A WHILE
I LIKE KENS FLIP STAND VERY INNOVATIV !
DUSTY I AM TRYING TO STAY IN SHAPE !
DOC THERE IS NO VIBERATION OR NOISE PROBLEM BUT LETS SEE WHEN THE ROUTER GETS FIRED UP
AS TO THE RORSCHACH TEST =YES I AM READY FOR ONE LOL !

THANKS TO YOU ALL
TILL THE NEXT PROJECT

Do you use the plainer at that elevation or is that just its storage spot?
I don’t use mine a lot but it is too heavy for me to move alone with out risking aggravating a bulged disk in my back.
currently my Dewalt takes up a lot of floor space for for how much i use it. your arrangement may be the trick. Both the table saw and plainer need the same front and back working clearance and both need dust collection run to them. It is an inconvenient height but would be fine for the occasional board or 3 and when I get a big plaining job going I can just get help to put it up at a comfortable working height.

dust collection on a sanding and routing space that doubles as table saw wing extension is very space efficient too.

You got me pondering…. Hmmm
Thanks.

Derick, The dust table, router table extension table should be marketed by kiefer. A thought about your back. I’m trying to figure out how to assemble my floor model drill press. When I assembled my band saw I secured a cross member to the large roof rafters I put in. nylon rope and patience and my come along got the job done. lol Thinking about setting up a tripod of 8’ to 10’ 2×4’s screwed braces which can be easily dissassembled? Another thought is a crank driven platform to raise it up when needed? I just built a multifunction bench with three levels and a place for my compound miter saw, Wish I had seen Kiefer’s ideas first, might have saved time. Kiefer you should get a patent and market this idea!

I thought you were just storing it down under …I didn’t know you used it in that position : )

I’ve been wanting to build something on the same design you have built. Good job! Thanks for the photos
