I wanted to store my bench top planer under the infeed wings of my miter saw station so I built this version of another of those “flip top” stands. I laminated 2 pieces of 3/4 plywood for the sides and the top giving it a really “beefy” feel. I used a 1” x 25” fan shaft for the pivot rod and barrel bolts to secure the top in place. It is edge banded with some 3/4” pine and finished with several coats of wipe on poly.
Since there is nothing mounted as a counter-weight I expected it to be a little heavy to rotate but I was pleasantly surprised. Not too difficult.
Now I can simply pull it out when I need it and when I’m not using the planer, it resides in formerly unused floor space.
