I’ve seen such a cabinet used for a planer; maybe searching for a flip top planer stand will find something? Off to try to google…

What kind of tool do you want to mount to the top? I’ve only seen custom made units, but was just thinking maybe you could use a sewing table, some of those are set up to have the sewing machine sit inside and then you can pull open the lid and it will come up from the bottom.

Try this link. It is a flip top planer/sander cart that Paul Stoops posted. He even provides plans.

HERE is another posting of a flip top cart.

Now what makes any of you think I own a kitchen aid or a sewing machine? :) :) Elizabeth got it! That’s exactly what I was talking about. Thanks, Elizabeth, it takes a woman….

Just for the fun of it, I’ll take this moment to explain why my husband and i will be spending this weekend cannibalizing my two shop heaters to convert them to 220 outlets. When my shop was being built, I had to go out of town to take of my daughter when was very sick, so I wasn’t able to be there to oversee how I wanted the electrical laid out. Even though I had discussed it very specifically with the contractor and briefly with the electrician, they just didn’t grasp what I meant when i said I was a woodworker and needed to have a lot of power to shop. I insisted I wanted 4 220 outlets. I got one. The “explanation” after the fact was, “You won’t need that kind of power for a scroll saw. I was thinking you would want a good heating system and enough power for a scroll saw and a few other small power tools.

Soooooo, I’m a bit sensitive. Again, good thing I have a sense of humor. The best part was when I came home the skylight had been filled with insulation and sheet rocked over. WTF?

I think I saw a shop-built one in a magazine once.

I don’t remember what the Sears product was called.

There are plans for one in “The Complete Small Shop” from August Home Publications. I got it when I subscribed to ShopNotes.

Thanks all, I found 4 different ones on LJ links you sent me and I found this through another link someone provided. I had searched the LJ site but didn’t have the right search terms.

Here is a link to some plans you can download for $5.95 I bought them.

Kreegan, I found that book on Amazon for $5.50 plus 3.99 shipping, I bought it.

Grizzman, have you ever seen the Red Green Show? These guys had several motto’s. Here are a couple for you: My favorite is the man’s prayer:

Man’s Prayer: I’m a man, I can change, if I have to, I guess.

“If it ain’t broke, yur not tryin hard enough”

“And men, remember, if the women don’t find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.”

I’ll try one of those kitchen-aid thingys. What does it do? Can you put wood in it?

@Natalie – The plans in that book are the ones I sorta went by to build my mobile cart. I just didn’t use plywood for the sides.

actually my buddy in arizona likes that show, well i sorta do, but dont get it here, but i thank you for the motto’s there pretty right on…yea look at the kitchen aid lift, i bet it would maybe do a bench type drill press or a bench type sander…you can mount your own self on it, its really not a bad idea…well, now i have to see if i can find the red green movie…or at least a roll of green duct tape…:)

Hey Natalie, I ran across this just yesterday on youtube. Sorry, my tablet is a pain to get links. Anyway, the product is called Bench Slide Mount. There is also a review of it on toolmonger.com . If anything just another possible option. WARNING….. I googled the product’s web address and found it listed but a possible malware warning from google in the site. Cool idea anyhow. My two bits….

I need to build one of these soon too. But I want to add my drill press and am thinking about something along these lines.

Just for a reference point in pricing there’s one of the Sears fliptop units on CL here now. He’s asking $80 for it. Unfortunately Knoxville, TN is a bit far for you to come get it.

Joein10 Yur killin me! I think that thing is great and if I had one to copy, I think my hubby could help me make one. I’m going to set a search on ebay and CL and hope to come up with one someday.

Thx RDan! Im planning to use this for my scroll saw and one for my drum sander. Maybe for a disc sander too. I like to keep the surface space useable, but the tradeoff is in the underneath cabinet space it will take up. So, as my shop organization progresses, I’ll know more about which kind of space I need more of.

“MT, any helpful comments on the plans you could pass along?”

I added a lower shelf to store the dust chute and parts for the sander. That’s much better. Also, all four casters lock.
It is easy to move around and sturdy.

Hope this helps.
