So…I needed a mobile base for my new planer but had a height restriction (due to it’s storage
spot). I also wanted to keep it cheap. I found a 1000 lb movers dolly with nice casters for
about $15. Had some leftover 3/4 plywood and spent about $6 on 2×4’s. Function is perfect for my
needs, and as I bolted the planer down, I can pull in around by its own built in handles.
Filled in thickness on the two long stretchers with cut and planed 2×4 pieces. The base is then a
double stack of simple 2×4 frames. I did not use 2×6 or 2×8 because in the future, I may
want to add posts between the 2×4 frames to increase working height – so that is an easy fix from where it is now.
At present, it needs to fit under the drill press as my garage is getting increasingly tight on space!
