Planer Table Adjustable

My portable planer works great for planing lumber to final thickness. The problem is, the short infeed and outfeed tables make it difficult to support long workpieces. So I built the extended infeed/outfeed tables for my planer shown in this photo.

Workshop Finishing Stand

Putting a new spin on finishing your projects. Painting a door is one of those projects that always seems to take twice as long as it should. That is because after painting one side of the door, you have to let the paint dry before you can turn the door over to paint the other side. To get around this problem ShopNotes Editor, Phil Huber, came up with a simple solution. He built a couple of support stands that hold the door without touching it, allowing you to paint both sides at one time.

Dual Tool Work Station

Making use of a miter saw or planer is often a compromise. For a long time I simply set one or the other on the top of my workbench, setting up makeshift supports when I needed to work with long stock. But this dual tool station allows me to make better use of both tools without tying up my bench. The cutting diagrams and materials list are available to download in this Online Extra.
