And very easy. I've actually done this to make a concrete-filled base for a camera stand. Simply cut two plywood rings out when you do the seat portion; scribe the inside diameter of the bottom of the bucket and cut that 3d circle out separately; glue that piece inside the recessed lip on the bottom of the bucket and glue and tack the second seat-sized piece to the bottom piece. Find the center of the bottom piece and locate four wheels 90 degrees apart near the outer edge of the bottom circle. Make those inset enough to drive your screws through both of the bottom plywood circles for strength, without penetrating the plastic of the bucket. Easy-peasy!!
Definitely a "gotta have" addition to my DIY woodwork shop. I will probably, however, put it on a platform with swivel wheels so I can "scoot" around the assembly sites. Thanks!!
Table Saw Class
Perhaps mount the planer on a duplicate base as the miter saw and make them interchangeable. Would seem to be an expedient way to use both "on the go", so-to-speak. Great 'ible!!!
Preemptive defense, y'all. I should have made the observation that, with a little bit of blocking, the planer would/could share the table top for in and outfeed. Sorry for the omission. :)
Excellent!! You were, I think, searching for "the outer diameter of the hole". A quick note: If you are cutting discs/wheels, etc., then the pivot dowel would be measured from the other side of the cutting blade so that the outer diameter of the removed piece is the diameter of the wheel/disc you are cutting. Nice, clean and DIY simple jig!!
Like so many other things, especially wood joinery, practice can make perfect. I haven't tackled mortise and tenon joinery jet, but intend to. I have, however, spent a lot of time perfecting box joints and each time it gets easier and fits better. Can't imagine that mortise and tenon joints are any different when it comes to perfecting your individual method. Great article!! Photos are spot on and the narrative is absolutely understandable.
