The only good thing about not having built a planer stand is that it makes a Great Weight for gluing.

This eventually will be a door. The frame is assembled with pocket screws and glue (not complete). The outer skin is 1/2” BCX ply and will receive paint.

Man, do I have a long way to go.

You make me want to start a new project. My shop needs a lot of work, not as much as your though. Great progress so far.

... of course you could always roll a car or truck onto it for more weight! LOL

Looking forward to seeing your progress on your doors…

Is that a 1×2 or 1×3 frame?

Thanks wseand.

Joe, I don’t plan on putting another vehicle in there unless absolutely necessary for maintenance. These are 1×3 frame members milled from 2×4 studs.
