Good things come in small packages

 

Base with wheels
A mobile platform to the rescue

Matt's jointer came with casters. "But the wheels were old-school steel wheels," he relates. "Lugging that thing across the shop and down a ramp and into the dirt got real tedious." So he fashioned an I-shaped mobile platform out of 2x4s that not only makes the tool easier to move but also elevates the worksurface to the same height as his tablesaw. Cross braces on the jointer stand work well to support his 12" portable planer. Lap joints make the platform sturdy: Locking casters mounted to the bottom of the platform allow Matt to keep the unit from moving around when he's ready to joint stock.
