Here's how we will deal with our brand-new underpinner! It is the machine that puts the nails into the frame to join it. It uses "V" nails--slices of metal that are pneumatically "pushed" into the bottom corners of a frame. If used with wood glue, a better join could not be built!

But a flat surface for the frame to rest on is also important, and we think we have come up with a way to do that.

As you can see, we've built a mobile "table" to fit the underpinner as exactly as possible. The underpinner as well as the table have been put on wheels. We plan on building two more tables, to accommodate the other three corners of a large frame, when the need surfaces. When we don't need to have "mobile expandable corner-supporting tables" we can push those tables aside and use them for something else.

EVERYTHING IS ON WHEELS! And they LOCK, so we can have stabiltiy!

Check it! 2x4's, 1x3's, foam core board, locking casters: EASY! We could patent it!
