  1. Jointer Mobile Base

    I built the same jointer base as: Greg Wurst (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/8831) and atceric (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/28156) The only difference is that I added T-Nuts and bolts to secure the jointer to the base after removing the feet. Not that gravity wasn't already doing a great...
  2. Table Saw and Router Station (March 2013)

    For those who haven't seen it on my blog. If you have I apologize. Finally done. Simple, sturdy base for my table saw and future router upgrade. Incorporated dust collection below for both with 4" PVC and 2 blast gates. About $45 invested in the base. 3 videos of the build if you are interested.
  3. Cart/Cabinet for Ridgid Oscilating Sander

    Here is another of my recent shop improvement projects. When I first got the sander, and for a while afterward, it was "mounted" on the cardboard box it came in. That wasn't working well, so I built this mobile base / cart / storage cabinet for it. It also holds all my sanding related stuff...
  4. Mobile Shop Cart Using a Car Jack

    I had seen some pretty cool ideas for mobile shop bases here and thought I would give it a shot. I had originally intended to build one like Joel Wires' basically brilliant mobile base but once I started laying out the pieces, I realized I didn't have the clearance on the horizontal supports of...
  5. Router Cabinet

    Router cabinet out of red oak. It's a bit nice for a shop cabinet, but I used it as practice for furniture. The Bosch RA1181 Table with 1617EVS router had been mounted on a Black & Decker Workmate - no wheels and no storage, and I couldn't use the Workmate for other things. The top and sides are...
  6. table saw station/cabinet

    So I finally decided to try and build a mobile base for my saw after seeing all the awesome table saw stations on here. I built the cabinet out of all 3/4 "blonde" ply from lowes and 4 inch casters. Used dados , glue and pocket screws for the construction. I'm pleased so far seems to be rock...
  7. Sheet Goods Rack/Cart

    Since I stumbled across Lumberjocks while looking for ideas for this project, I figured I should post it as my first project! I have been needing to build a mobile storage rack for sheet goods for my garage shop that does double duty as (shock!) a garage! Because space is at a premium, I...
  8. Drill press mobile base

    I wanted my drill press to be mobile but it had to meet 2 conditions. It needed to be rock solid as it sat in its "normal home". It also needed to be stable when it was in motion. With the exception of the casters, this was built with materials laying around the shop. I started with 2 pieces...
  9. Mobile Table Saw Station

    I really love my Bosch 4100 table saw… I know it's not a fancy Delta, Jet or Powermatic contractor or cabinet saw but it works for me and more importantly my space. It came with the typical steel angle frame which I knew some day I would make mobile. So I designed this saw station which is...
  10. Mobile Base for Drill Press

    This is a simple mobile base that is really stable when moving around and rock solid when the base is down on the ground. When in use the wheels are like outriggers that give great side to side stability. I used Rockler's workbench wheels and dimension lumber from the shop. Imitation is the...
  11. Mobile Drill Press Stand From Old Filing Cabinet

    During my shop renovation, I decided I wanted to get every machine possible on a mobile cart or stand. This is my solution for my Drill Press. I "up-cycled" an old filing cabinet by popping the drill press on top and bolting it down. My neighbor graciously gave me this drill press, gratis...
  12. Old Unisaw Mobile Base with Dust Collection

    So I wanted to mobilize my table saw but had some design restrictions that I felt would limit me to build my own mobile base instead of purchasing. I just finished the project and man I am pretty happy with its end result so I thought I would share. The base only raised the top of the table by...
  13. Table Saw/Router Table Cart Modification

    Over the course of last year I have focused in on upgrading the table saw/router table cart. It all started whit the fence system. After shopping around an looking at the few options for fence upgrades I chose to go with the Vega U50 Table Saw Fence System, witch has a 50 inch rip capacity. This...
  14. Jointer Mobile Base/Cart project with Retractable Roller Extension Arms

    Full project build video HERE Jointer rebuild video HERE I recently rebuilt an old Rockwell/Beaver jointer and could find any available designs for a mobile base/cart that fit my needs for a small garage shop. So I designed and built the the most feature rich jointer mobile base/cart ever with...
  15. Jointer Base with Retractable Casters

    I finally got fed up with my store bought base for my Jet jointer. Only two of the casters on it rotate requiring four point turns to get around my small shop. I salvaged the materials for this base from an older planer stand I had made but no longer used. It's a construction lumber frame with...
  16. Tablesaw/Router Table Cart

    After obtaining an old Craftsman Table Saw (113.298750) and wrestling the 200 lb beast just inside the shop door I made it a priority to build a mobile base to set it on. Also, I had been wanting to build a router table for a few years now for my Craftsman 2.5 hp Router with a ½" collet so I...
  17. Santa Silhouette

    I was inspired by my late Grandfather "Fast Eddie" to build this silhouette of Santa. His version is the last photo. It mounts on my extension ladder. I recently moved into a condo and sold my extension ladder so it wont be getting much use anymore.

  19. Mobile table saw base (Ridgid R4511)

    I needed an improvement to get my table saw around that was more functional for stability, mobilty, and adjustability. I took inspiration from a website called benchmark20 i believe is what it was called. I modified a few things per my preference. In the first photo (the underside of the base...
  20. Jointer mobile base (added mobility and stability)

    I didn't like the powermatic jointer base made of steel. I thought a wood base would be better. I was inspired by Don Ks base but modified mine a little using angle iron instead of plywood. I think his plywood idea would of been as good or easier but I needed to keep my overall height down to...
