Made with birch plywood and oak trim. The planer is bolted to a sandwich of plywood with an oak lattice in the middle. I wanted to countersink the bolts so I could have a work surface but I didn’t plan for positioning to be through the interior oak. I felt that if I countersunk (about 3/8”) into the plywood it might not have been strong enough to hold the planer for the long haul so the washers and bolts protruded from the plywood. I added one more piece of plywood with holes countersunk for the ends of the bolts, giving me a flat surface to work on. The plan I took from a FWW shops issue.

Nice.
Funny how we get design modifications that happen along the way.
Someone needs to stop by my place and build some cabinets. This little guy would be a great start.

Good Job,
(I didn’t remember that FWW had done one of these. I need to go look it up. Thanks.)

I´m on my way of building one of this. Never seen FWW plan. Has it two glued 3/4 ply sides, or only one?

Nice addition.

Nice work, I think I was just looking at a plan for the flip top stand just the other day. Althoug I think it was Wood mag or Shopnotes. Can’t remember.

The plan was from FWW #195 Smart Garage Workshop, From the Ground Up p 51. There’s an exploded view of the cart. It has 2 3/4 panels on the sides.
