Default My Grain Mill Station

Nothing great, but I built this today. I still have to install the casters and mount the drill. It will help make brew day a lot smoother. Click image for larger version

That is nice. Really gives me food for thought to build my own along these lines. Will you be surface sealing the plywood?

Very nice! I just got my mill this past month, and crouching down to use it isn't all that fun. I could build this with a $9 piece of plywood and have HD make the cuts for it. Thanks for the post!

They will do all that work for you? My understanding is they cut things to length for you but I don't know about cutting a piece of plywood into like 8 custom sized pieces. . Especially for the sale of "$9" (3/4" and even 1/2" plywood usually costs at least twice that)

You can use this with no issues. I've had them make all the cuts needed for me to build a coat rack. I went in there with the diagrams for like 8 pieces, all different sizes, and just told the guy what lengths I needed of what. It was great.

Now, there cuts aren't always 100% perfect, but it doesn't necessarily need to be for something like this. Looking for functionality.
