My shop is 18×20. That is 18ft long by 20 inches wide. (What’s left of our garage with both cars in) All my equipment and work benches fold up or down or roll around or all three. When I got my surface planer, I had to get to work. Because of their weight, neither the sander or the planer are easy to horse up to a bench top. There are several much more classy stands than this that can be found on this site but I had most of the sheet goods leftover from other projects and got it done in a day and a half. I used 1/2” steel rod, nylon bushings, and collars from the local hardware store for the pivot function. The lid to the lower bin is hinged and can be opened from either side.
