More Planing, Less Exercise

Fasten your portable planer to a board; then fasten the board to a miter saw stand. The stand’s board supports act as infeed and outfeed for planing.

Planing long boards alone isn’t easy. You get plenty of exercise running from the infeed side to the outfeed side before the board flips your portable planer. Granted, it won’t flip if it’s properly bolted down, but here’s a better way: Fasten your portable planer to a board; then fasten the board to a miter saw stand. The stand’s board supports act as infeed and outfeed for planing, greatly reducing the exercise part of planing long boards. Then you’ll have more energy to start your project right way! — Terry Blanchard
