This is the Rolling Planer Stand from Shop Notes 91. It is made of 3/4” Project Plywood, Ash, Hickory, Aluminum Angle for the Drawer Pull, and 1 1/2” PVC Pipe for the Outfeed “Rollers.” The Outfeed Support swings up and out of the way when not in use, making it very easy to store the unit against a wall. On top of the stand you can see the newest power tool in my shop, my DeWalt DW735 Planer. I got it for $399 at Lowes, when the morning price change came through, and the person responsible put the marked down yellow price tag for the DW734 directly on the display model DW735 with a zip tie. I got a new one in the box, regular price $649, for $399 plus tax, and minus $225 in Lowes gift cards i had been saving for this exact occasion! [gloats] :-) Enjoy the rolling planer stand, and i hope it inspires you to build a better one and share it with all of us!

Ha I paid $400 for a used 735 and had to drive an hour to get it! Nice stand, and nice deal!
This Lowes thing seems to be a common thing. A man I was installing hardwood flooring for got 500 sq ft of red oak laminate flooring for $125 due to a casheer mistake!

I like your stand especially the rollers, the folding arm an the bolts on the arm that I assume are fine adjustment.

I have the same planer and it’s great.

Very nice stand! I will second LaLa’s recommendation on replacement knives from Infinity tools; my originals dulled quickly.

Yeah, mine are still very sharp, but i was planing some 2×4’s down so i could level the outfeed support with the table, and they already have3 a nick in them on the left side. It left a slightly raised line on any wood run through that side. I’m really kinda bummed that they got a nick so quickly on soft pine. Does dimensional lumber usually cause trouble on planer knives?

love my 735! got mine used on craigslist, but to say used is an overstatement, it’s basically new without the box, and i only paid $300! The guy selling it had used it 3 times!!

Nice idea on the outfeed. though i’m tempted to make it actually roll. Either way, a great looking portable setup! Love the way it folds up and out of the way!

Zero, That’s the best deal i’ve ever heard of on a 735. I trolled craigslist all over the southeast looking for a used one, never could find a good enough deal to make it worth the drive. Good Job!

On the outfeed, seriously, the PVC is so smooth and friction free, you dont need rollers.
