I have been working on this off and on for the past few weeks. I've had the motor since spring time, but I have been putting off this project.

My goal was a mission style table make of mortise and tenons. What I did not expect was the number of bar clamps I would need. So it is slightly... or a lot... out of square depening on how you look at it. Oh well, learn from your mistakes. It still works okay.

The switch is hidden under the front right hand side.

I may add some casters and a sock to keep dust down and direct grain to the bucket.

Thanks. More than once I was wondering why I was spending time (and money) on making this out of poplar. But I'm happy with the final results.

Looks great.

+1Hoppyguy: I also don't deal well with wood that isn't attached to me.

The mill station looks fantastic! Great job on the woodworking. This is one of my projects off in the distance once I get my HERMS e-build done. What size motor did you use?

It was the 177 rpm motor from Surplus Center that a lot guys on the board have used. I don't think it is still available though.
