I’m in the middle of building a very simple planer cart that will get my lunchbox planer up off the floor/bench and onto wheels. It’s a standard cabinet case construction to provide added storage.

this is going to make things much easier for you – I need to do the same for my jointer.

I made one for mine. Might I suggest larger wheels I’ve found that 4” and they roll over cords and small wood chips. Otherwise these things are wheel chocks. I’ve got 4” on some of my stuff and smaller ones on other carts. I hate the smaller ones and will replace them eventually.

Excellent suggestion, COTL. That’s one of those little things you don’t think of usually, but bugs the snot out of you later on. :)

I’ve already chosen the larger wheels, I picked up these at woodcraft at their last sale:

They usually get good reviews. Glue up was tonight, pics tomorrow but nothing impressive, it’s a 33×25x17 cabinet with wheels!

Have your say...
