I recently acquired a DeWalt 735 and am thoroughly happy with it.

The plan is from Woodsmith. The only modification I made was to the wheels. The plans call for 4 rotating lockable wheels. Those are just too expensive for my tastes.
I bought two fixed and two swivel and fastened them so that the stand will move “sideways” and then I turn it 90 degrees to be used. That way the pressure is on the stationary wheels and no locks are required.

I have a fixed DC system but still have to have some of my tools on wheels. Especially helpful when you have long pieces of wood to deal with. I fixed a FazLok (Woodworkers Supply) to the chip blower and then can move the flex hose from another tool when I need to use the planer.

The outfeed “table” swings up and out of the way when not in use.Photo 1. It also has two adjustable bolts on the case end that can be used to adjust the height to eliminate snipe. Photo 2.

It takes 1 and 1/4 sheets of ply. What is not really visible is that there is a convenient pass thru that makes it a lot easier to deal with multiple pieces. Photo 3.

In addition to the dadoes the plans call for I used pocket holes for extra holding strength and trimmed the edges with left over cherry.


-- No piece is cut too short. It was meant for a smaller project.

I like that I have the same planer and have been wanting to do something like that but have yet to get around to it. I might have to steal this idea from you.

Cool, nice clean straightforward design. Someday™ I want to get my hands on a Jet planer/jointer, be a nice cart to make for it, tho to fit in my space I’d have to maybe hinge the arm so it folds down rather than flips up so I can tuck it away. Which issue of Woodsmith was that in?

Very nice outfeed stand. Looks like it provides good valuable storage underneath, which is something you can never get enough of.

Lee, what issue of Woodsmith did the plans come from?

Very nice. Sounds like another project I need to add to my list. How does the PVC pipe work on the outfeed table? Would it be better if they were rollers? Or a solid slick flat surface?

very cool and practicle. why no infeed rollers though?

I did the same thing with my router table casters – installed 2 swivel, and 2 stationary, and mounted them perpendicular to the direction of the feed on the table. just makes more sense

Very nicely done, I have the same planer and need to make a moble cabinet for it. Great idea with the out feed rollers. Would save me time setting out all my roller stands. ATTA BOY AAAAA +++++
