Well I learn a little lesson with this project. It was to hold my Ridgid Planner but it was too tall! Yes, I know, measure twice…......

I didnt see the need to make it out of expensive wood since it will only be used in my workshop (garage).

But it turns out to be a nice sanding station….

Very nice.
I really need to make one of these as well.
I hope I can make it as good as yours.
How did you make your pivot for the top?

I’ll tell you, my Ridgid Planer table is too big for THAT table. That being said, I think you chose the right combination of tools for this flip-top!

Well done!

I went with two 3/8” ×2” tension pins instead of metal rods or wood dowels.

Have your say...
