I just got a planer and the thing was to heavy to lug around so I did a little search and found a member here (vrice) who had made one from Wordsmith plans. It was a pretty easy build, but needed a little detail getting everything lined up nice for the wood to roll onto the rollers. It had a lot of bells and whistles I skipped, which didn’t seem necessary to me, but I’m real happy with it. I was a little sketched on running PVC through the TS, but thanks to Woodust I got it done!!

Everything folds up well and it has a pretty small profile in the garage, which is nice!

Great job. I bet the pvc you had sketchiness about will work out very well for you. I like the design.

Nice project! I am going down the same road as you. Purchased a )new to me) planer and now need a stand. Do you miss having an infeed table? How long of stock have you run thorugh the planer?

I still have the indeed table from the tool and I’ve ran 8’ pieces of 2x through it and the rollers supported it!

Great job! The one I built (4 years ago) is still going strong. Use it on almost every project. My only regret are the cheap casters I put on it. At this point they don’t swivel well. Need to replace them with better ones.
