I liked quite a few of the flip-top cabinets that have appeared on the Lumberjocks site. Quite a few had a power tool on each side of the table. I on the other hand don’t have the room in my garage as my quest is to use my garage as place to park my cars when I’m not working on projects. This cabinet allows me to tuck it under the wing of my table saw cabinet when everything is stored away. When the planer is stored inside the cabinet I use the top as a work surface. I used ball-catch latches to lock the flip-up doors in place and the doors support the top from flipping. Since I only have one tool attached to this cabinet I increased the height of the back to reduce racking.
I used a solid 1/2” steel rod sandwich-d between two pieces of 3/4” ply and added some poplar trim. The drawer stores the extension tables and the tools for the planer.
