Shop furniture adapted from Lockwatcher’s Easy Shop Table blog. I added several drawers with full extension slides for extra storage in the shop.

Nice work. Once you get the extension tables, you will really be in business.

I have that same planer and have drawers under it also. Works well for me. I have my drawers 90 degrees from how yours are in the photo though.

Nice cart. If I may ask what are the dimensions? How big are your drawers?

Much better concept than mine. I have the same planer and the older version. i wanted to use the old one for rough cutting, etc. and the new one for finish cutting—no grit, no metal!!!. I put one above the other, with the old one on the bottom. The one on the bottom is just too low to be convenient. Need a do over I guess. Should have gone with a means of rotating them. I never posted it because I wasn’t happy with it. I really should I guess—it might help someone else.
What I like about yours is that it has a small footprint and functional storage below.

This is a very nice cabinet for that planer.
