I took a little time off from building cabinets this weekend to put together a new stand for my planer. Previously, I had built a flip top stand and it worked really well. But it took up too much real estate in my small shop.
So, I designed a new stand that would be mounted on casters so I can move it around. It has a smaller footprint and I like that. There is room for a drawer. I’ll finish that later.
The lower part of the stand is designed to look sorta like a crate. I will use it to store the 4 inch dust collection hose…and there is enough room for a couple more hoses also. Extra storage is a good thing.
When we finish our kitchen remodel, I may take the planer off and cover the top with some Formica, of which I have plenty.
Color me happy!
I would like to give a shout out to Scootles for drawing up my design idea. Thanks for the help. As I was building it, I made a couple of changes, but everything he drew was right on the money.
