Saw and Assemble

To build one, use a compass to mark three 5"-radius circles on 3/4" plywood. Bandsaw and sand the discs to shape. For the top, locate and mark the nine curved slot locations [Drawing 1a]. Drill 5/8" start holes for the outside and middle slots and 3/8" start holes for each inside slot. Then, scrollsaw or jigsaw between the holes to form the slots. Drill 5/8"-deep holes in the shelf to fit the shanks of your bits and accessories and a 1/2" hole through the base for screw access.

Crosscut the dowels to length. Create a collar with a 3/4" hole in it. Assemble the unit [Drawing 1] and attach the bearing to the base, using the 1/2" access hole in the base to drive the screws into the shelf.

I have Firefox and had no problem at all. I clicked the link at the end of the verbiage and the plan immediately downloaded and opened as a .pdf. I use Ubuntu Linix and often have an issue but not in this case. You may want to check as to whether or not you are using the correct Adobe program. John
