As promised, here are links to a few pictures of the pedestal on my jointer
(formerly Barry's jointer). The first shows the overall construction.
Nothing fancy, just 2x4s with 3/4" particle board top and bottom. Those
plus a couple of other details result in the entire jointer being about 6"
higher off the ground than the way it comes from the Borg.
This picture gives a little closer look at the 2 slats Barry included on the
bottom which both prevents the whole thing from wobbling on a not perfectly
flat floor, and allows the insertion of a hand truck for relatively easy
And here is a more detailed look at one of the attachment points which
connect the legs of the unit to the top of the base.
If for some reason these links don't work for you, let me know and I'll post
