I was tired of lugging my planer around and as you can see setting it on a milk crate was not ideal. I was trying to make it look somewhat like cabinet model. I made it from 4×4s which I ran through the jointer and planer to square up. I used mortis and tenons to join everything together. Then made a rabbet for 1/2” mdf panels to fit into. Put it on casters to roll it around easy, added a door for storage, and bolted my planer on top. I was originally going to fill any cracks and tear out then paint it but I decided to save the time and money and leave it bare. It’s functional not a work of art. Eventually I’ll put a shelf in for added storage

Great Stand! I need one just like it, get rid of that darned splayed-legged thing my planer came with.

Love the pics that look like your jointer and planer just vomited all over your floor like frat boys on a Saturday night. Nice looking stand too. :)

nice work – that looks pretty bomb-proof. Thanks for the extra build pics.
