I created a video showing the construction of a Fliptop Tool Stand I built for my planer and oscillating spindle sander. My shop, like so many others is inside a small two car garage with some days feels like a one car garage. Space is not something I have a lot of and because the house I live in is a rental and only temporary, I can’t build cabinets like I’d like and or don’t want to put in the effort to build something that I’ll just have to remove and take apart when I finally move into a house I own. Mobile tool stand on the other hand can be easily built and moved without too much trouble and in the case of this stand, reduces necessary floor space and makes it mobile so I can move it out of the way when it’s not in use.

Head on over and take a look at the video and let me know what you think. This is my first ever build video and I couldn’t have done it without the motivation and know how of other youtube creators such as Mathew Cremona, Jimmy DiResta, Steve Ramsey….. the list goes on and on.

Nice build. Did the bracing remove all the racking or at least most of it?

Also, what are you doing with all the sanders accessories when it’s upside down?

The bracing removed just about all the racking I was getting without it. Also, once the top is locked in place with the threaded knobs it’s pretty darn sturdy.

I am going to be making a couple shallow shelves for the side of the stand that will hold all the spindle sander parts. as it is right now they are sitting in a box underneath.

I built one too.
I did not add the bracing but I like what you have done and I think I will follow your lead.
BTW Don’t use cheap casters. It sucks trying to replace them after you have already bolted everything on the table tops.

Good video. The only downside to the braces is they will trap sawdust in the bottom.

That’s what the dust collector is for. Or at least that’s the idea…

Did you pin the steel rod in anyway? I’m mocking one up and seems like with only 4 points of contact on the rod that the tool shelf will want to spin on the rod vs. the rod spinning in the holes in the sides. I did a dry run with no tools and this happened so I’m contemplating my options. Does yours ever do this? It’s not a big deal except for the horrible noise the wood makes spinning on the rod!

thanks
Brad
