First Post! Long time reader and decided to contribute.

I was cleaning my shop last weekend and realized I needed a place to store my band saw so I decided to make this. I had seen plans for this stand on woodsmith. After a few minor modifications I adapted the Woodsmith plans to fit my small bandsaw. I will try to place a small Woodriver oscillating sander on there as well. I don’t have it stained or finished yet but this coming weekend I will get that completed. Oh I still need to find some casters for it. Oh yes this is too nice of wood for a shop tool stand but I had the materials on hand and it was good case work practice. First drawer I ever made. etc…etc… Just wanted to share something I made.

Stained it and placed it on casters. I should have made this a long time ago. So nice being able to roll out my tools. It still needs some poly but I am going to wait until it warms up. Stinks up the place when I have the garage door closed and I don’t want to heat the garage all night to let it dry.

I think I am going to build another to place my planer on it. My planer is on a shop fox stand with a mobile base. The base is much bigger then the top so it is annoying getting close to the planer. Plus no storage underneath it.

Very nice. Looks like the drawers turned out really well. I think this is the nicest looking bandsaw stand I’ve ever seen!

A very good support for your band saw.

Looks really good man!! IMO there is nothing to good for the shop, I spend more time in the shop it seems than my house. Keep up the good work and postings.

Get nice casters, woodcrafts are good, I use them
