bch’s post of his Flip-top Tool Stand inspired me to make mine. It really helped clear up some floor space and also to make those 2 tools more accessible for me.

The plans were in shop notes and I followed them completely. No changes were needed. The sides were some baltic birch ply that I had laying around and the rest was made of cabinet grade ply picked up @ HD. I was super excited to get to install and use a dado stack for the first time

I finished the bottom and the bottom 2” on the wide with polycrylic.

How stable is it side-to-side. Without a back or any cross supports it seems like it might wanna “rack” a little, especially when that planer is running….
great work though, looks sharp….

I built one as well from the same plans and love this thing! Very solid and quick to flip when needed. I would recommened this to anyone that has space issues.

Nice work on yours, well done.

John-
When in use, I tighten the knobs as much as possible so the sides are tight against the top. I positioned my planer so it is perpendicular to the sides to limit the racking. I left if i positioned it parallel to the sides it would rack.

This is EXACTLY was I was looking for!! Very nice!! Do you remember which Shop Notes Number was this plan published?

I bought a planer last December and need to build one like yours since my shop is really small.

Thank you!

Got the full pdf version of the Complete Small Shop downloaded.

Thank you very much for the info. I will try to build the cart when I return from a short vacation to Islamorada FL.
We are leaving this weekend. Got beer and fishing rod ready!

Thank you!
