Step 1: Material

Picture of Material

For this project, this is the material that you need to build one small circular bench:

  • wood (on next step you will see the size)
  • wood screws
  • one motor 220v 0,8HP 5.2A (you can use other with the same dimension)
  • metal plate
  • white glue for wood
  • circuit breaker C6

The circuit breaker only will interrupt one phase of machine, the cable will connect direct at motor.

Step 2: Technical drawings

This are all my drawings to construct of my circular bench, with this, you can reproduce every wood parts, you will need a drill driver and something that cut the wood like a another circular bench or a saw.

Step 3: Mounting Machine

With this 2 videos, you will see how can you assembly all the parts :) it's easy

Step 4: Photos of machine

This photos are of many angles of my machine, with this you can ask questions and see how can you connect the cable at motor with circuit maker for example, if you have questions, ask me please.

Step 5: Video of cutting wood

Well, we come to the end, this small video proof that machine works without problems. I hope that you like, this project is easy to do, and like i said before, it is helpful. If you have anything that you don't understand, please ask me, i will answer and correct the article.

Could you tell us, how did you make or find the arbor? That's the metal piece that connects the blade to the motor shaft. The blade can't wobble and must be nearly perfectly concentric with the motor shaft.

do you an architech?

Great project, but I didn't understood how did you mounted the blade to the motor. Can you explain it better?

It looks more like a "cubic-ish bench", instead of a "circular bench"... :-9 Sorry, couldn't help myself! It's a great Instructable, and this gave a great idea for my own "circular bench" ("TABLE SAW to the grammar nazis like me). Well done!
