I just finished building a mobile stand for my (inexpensive Craftsman) thickness planer this weekend and like it a lot. It was made with old 2×4s that I cleaned up using my planer, so it was a fun project. Cost me around $15 for the piano hinges and a half sheet of MDF…everything else was stuff I had left over from other projects. It rides on a HTC universal base that I wasn’t using. Cheap, sturdy, useful and fun to make. What else can you ask for?

Is the planer recessed in the top? Love the stand, think I’ll do one like that.

Thanks…it has a recessed top and was simple to make. I’ve attached a sketch and materials list if you’d like to build one yourself. Since I no longer have to lug the planer out from under my bench, I’ve found I’m more likely to use it!
