Leg Stand For Stationary Tools
Add the legs
Clamp the frame upside down on your workbench. Apply glue to the mating bevels of the leg halves, and insert the splines. While holding the halves together by hand, clamp the legs to the frame. This holds the halves at the proper angle while you finish clamping the length of the leg, as shown in the photo. When the glue is dry, mark the tapers on the legs, and cut with a jigsaw or bandsaw. Clean up the cuts with a couple of passes over your jointer. Rout the round-overs, and using the holes drilled in the legs as guides, drill the holes in the frame.
Bolt the legs in place, and if needed, cut a piece of plywood and screw it to the cleats. Place your tool on the stand, and mark the locations of the mounting bolts with a pencil.
Drill the holes and apply the finish of your choice. When the finish is dry, bolt your machine in place and enjoy safe, rock-solid woodworking.
