I recently bought a planer and needed a way to have it and my miter saw set up where I could just roll them out and use them without any big set up. This cart design I came up with was the best fit for me.

I had to work with minimal space. I saw other similar designs, but they involved passing the stock through the planer under the miter saw. I like the planer oriented the way I have it better.

I added in the built-in AC power socket and flip-up support wings. Also, I wanted to the use the space under the equipment for storage. I will be adding a door to at least the bottom cabinet, maybe the top also.

My miter saw was sitting in my box trailer until I needed it. I just bought the planer, but it was already sitting on the floor, getting in the way.

I really like this. It would be a big space saver for me.

That was the whole purpose for me. I am CRAMPED in a single car garage and it’s not even a spacious single car garage :o)

Putting these in a place where I could not only get to them, but also move them out of the way was a must. I have a crush and run driveway, so at some point I’m hoping to get that done in concrete so I can just roll the cart out, use it and roll it back.
