I built this flip-top stand to fit my planer and mortiser. It is based on some photos and plans I had seen online. The mortiser is intended to be mounted to the flip side of the top.

Red oak plywood finished with Fruitwood Watco Danish Oil. Trim and knobs are cherry finished with Cherry Watco Danish Oil. Topcoated with a couple coats of poly. I really liked the contrast as well. I built the router table first and carried the scheme to this stand.

Do you swing the vertical pieces on hinges out to flip the top?

I’ve seen a lot of flip-top carts and this is by far the nicest.

Yes, the four vertical pieces swing out to allow the top to pivot on a 1” oak dowel.

Dozer, Did you not mount the mortiser so it would not be upside down? Was this due to the hydro/spring set up on a mortiser?

The mortiser is not mounted at all in the photos, it’s just sitting on the lower shelf area. The intention was to mount it to the flip side opposite the planer, just never happened.
