Here are a couple of pictures of a Roll-Around Shop Cart with storage that I built for my planer, that has proven to be very useful. I got the plans from ShopNotes Vol. 12 Issue 68. It has four locking casters so it won’t move when in use and then can be put away when not needed, and the extra storage is great….. I made it from 2×4’s and some plywood. The drawers have full extension glides.

Nice. I like it much better than the one that came with my planer.

I believe you and I have the same planer, how do you like yours? Mine does not want to collect dust properly, not sure if its the planer or the collector. Who knows, otherwise it works great for me!

Dan, I sent you the plans. Hope to see it posted on Lumberjocks soon.

Jim, It is a great cart for storage and when not in use can roll it to the side….
