After a struggle to revive a Craigslist DeWalt 735 planer, a funny story – see my blog, I thought it deserved to be put a pedestal. Well, at least a better place than my old Delta planer that was always balanced on a Black & Decker workstation.

And it seemed appropriate to put the 735 though it paces during the build. So, the planer cart was built with WLA, Whatever’s Laying Around. Awful Douglar Fir 2×4s carefully cleaned and run through the planer. Some birch plywood a pine board. With hardware I probably have $60+ in the project.

I am pleased with the fact that I gained badly needed storage space, not to mention a 92 lbs machine is now mobile.

Hey, some of my WLA projects turn out to be some of my best work. The cart(or pedestal) looks good. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the kind words, Brethren! Had fun today beginning to store and arrange tools in the cabinet.
