Topic tags/keywords: flip top cabinet tool cabinet

Okay, I am trying to do a search for a cabinet that has a tool mounted on the top, and when you are not using the tool you can flip the top and the tool goes inside the cabinet, and stores upside down.

I have tried the search terms “flip top cabinet”, “hidden tool cabinet” . “Tool storage” is way too broad, but I am stumped. If you have a link to any articles or photos feel free to provide those.

Thanks for you help.

Natalie

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?
