I got tired of lifting my planer or kneeling on the ground. Time to build a cart.
This is based on the Wood plan with a nod to the Woodsmith “small shops” cart.
The case is made of two layers of 3/4” luan plywood, edged with redwood. I used all scraps for this project except for the steel rod, casters, and eye bolts. Total cost around $20
It took me about two weekends to make this.
I let the drawer overhang the shelf, so that I did not need a handle. I am not sure what to store in the drawer or which tool will reside on the flip side.
It was fun to build, and I can reach the planer, roll it, and a bit more storage too.

Just because you want to see it flip.
