I built this cart specifically for my DeWalt planer. It’s made entirely of spalted hard rock maple. The top is a reclaimed workbench top I saved from a neighbors fire pit. The in and out feed tables fold down to save space. It took me about 30 hours to design and build it. I am very happy with the result.

Looks nice and solid! Can you adjust your tables at all? What do you use for dust collection for that F-14 chip ejector on top of it?

I have a shop fox collection system which is pretty close to the planer, it sucks all the chips with no problem. I did not build in any adjustments to the tables but I can lay a 6 foot level accross the span with almost no variation from end to end. An adjustment mod probably wouldn’t be too difficult though adding it to the support leg. THe planer weighs 96 pounds and the table weighs 129, it’s solid.

I love working with Maple, I like to think of it as the steel of the wood world. Being a former Machinist I am constantly striving for accuracy perfection and Maple has very little temperature movement.
