This is my shop made stand for mounting my scroll saw and bench-top band saw. I decided to show it here as a project after many woodworker friends made good comments on it and wanted to copy it. It is a simple and definitely not pretty construction made from 2×4 scraps and other wood scraps. I built a sort of saw horse with an extra wide top to mount these 2 tools. These are mounted back to back so that neither gets in the way of the other. At the bottom I attached some more cross supports to make it steady when in use. You can’t see them in the pictures but this also has 4 casters for moving it around and spinning the right machine into place for use. Afterwards, I just laid and old piece of plywood shelving across it to store my small router table on. As you can see in the picture the sides of it also serve as my small clamp storage. I also added a small inflatables blower to it and the arm of my scroll saw for blowing off the saw dust from my scroll saw as the built in blower never did work . I would attempt to make the plans but this is so simple it really isn’t necessary. I made the top framed to proper size for my tools, then attached the legs, cross braces and casters. If you like my simple project leave a comment.
