This winter I have been trying to organize and mobilize my shop more. My old faithful Grizzly planer was on a stand without wheels and was a bit cumbersome to move where I needed it and back out of the way. All of my extra planer blades, my small collection of hand planes and the Porter Cable power plane were scattered all over wherever there was room. Now everything is easily moved and a place for everything.

The small top drawer holds all the extra Grizzly blades along with the knife setting jigs and manuals. The hand plane drawer has a space under the plane till for storage of old and extra planes and parts. The power plane is on the bottom so always know where it is anytime it is needed. Have two solid wheels on the left side and the right side are double locking casters.

The frame is construction lumber with 1/2” plywood for the sides and drawers. Finish is golden oak stain with polyurethane for easy upkeep. Looks are on the rustic side but it is a great functional addition to the shop. Have used it a lot and am really happy with it all.

As always thanks for looking and any and all comments are appreciated.

That is my kind of project. You’ve got a lot of stuff well organized in a small footprint.
