All of these are great ideas. I was thinking about this in the shower this morning, and I realized I would be just as well with a traditional flip top cart that is open through the middle. The only reason would be to make the cabinets that are on the back wall of the shop have a consistent look. I am not sure that I am willing to spend the extra money on a consistent look.

To balance out the cart, I am going to fix a space in the bottom to store a 70 pound bag of concrete. That will help keep things stable when I go to flip the planer over. Plus, I have had a 70 pound bag of concrete laying around the shop for at least 3 years that I need to do something with. I am too cheap to throw it away.

Thanks for the ideas. I will at least post a picture of the finished product. Hopefully I can put this together this week and weekend. It will really help the shop storage. There will be definitely more to come on this one.

Thanks again,
Rob Hix
