Made with birch plywood and oak trim. The planer is bolted to a sandwich of plywood with an oak lattice in the middle. I wanted to countersink the bolts so I could have a work surface but I didn’t plan for positioning to be through the interior oak. I felt that if I countersunk (about 3/8”) into the plywood it might not have been strong enough to hold the planer for the long haul so the washers and bolts protruded from the plywood. I added one more piece of plywood with holes countersunk for the ends of the bolts, giving me a flat surface to work on. The plan I took from a FWW shops issue.

Funny how we get design modifications that happen along the way.
Someone needs to stop by my place and build some cabinets. This little guy would be a great start.

Good Job,
(I didn’t remember that FWW had done one of these. I need to go look it up. Thanks.)

I´m on my way of building one of this. Never seen FWW plan. Has it two glued 3/4 ply sides, or only one?

Nice addition.

Nice work, I think I was just looking at a plan for the flip top stand just the other day. Althoug I think it was Wood mag or Shopnotes. Can’t remember.

The plan was from FWW #195 Smart Garage Workshop, From the Ground Up p 51. There’s an exploded view of the cart. It has 2 3/4 panels on the sides.
