  1. Flip Top Tool Cart

    Soon, we're going to be building a dedicated workshop in the backyard. So my workshop at the moment is half my garage. That means that I am limited in space. To solve this, I had multiple mobile carts carrying various tools. To use my miter saw, I'd pull the cart out and set up roller stands...
  2. Flip Top Rolling Tool Cart

    This is a rolling cart with a flip top I built to try to maximize some shop space (I'm just in process of putting a 1-stall garage shop together). I looked at several designs and decided on a slightly beefed up version of one I saw online, I'll try to find the link to where I saw the design. The...
  3. Green flip-top planer stand

    I built this stand for reasons similar to most people who build these… saving floor space. I did not elect to use it for two tools though. My primary purpose was to be able to put my planer under the extension table without having to lift it off the floor every time I wanted to use it. I...
  4. Alternative to flip top planer/oscillating sander table

    Moving my benchtop planer around in my shop when it was needed was a real chore. It is about 70 lbs and needs a lot of room to either side when used, but is frequently stored and not in use. I looked at several flip top sander/planer table designs. My Delta Planer is taller than the Dewalt or...
  5. Flip Stand for mitre saw and planer

    Since we had our first baby at the beginning of march I haven't spent much time out the garage, so I end up thinking up new projects while feeding or changing diapers. First new project was to re-arrange the garage, starting with this stand. I only have half of a double garage with my wife...
  6. Flip Top Tool Stand For Planer And Drill Press

    Made this for my planer and drill press. I needed a stand for my planer and I don't use my drill press a lot, so it works great to have it out of the way when not in use. It also holds some drill bits and a chuck on the side. The base is mobile. It pivots on a 3/4" piece of conduit.
  7. Flip top planer cabinet with offset pivot

    I built a flip top planer cabinet as part of a larger shop reorganization project. The criteria were that when stored, the top of the cabinet would be the same elevation as the rest of the tables so as to serve as infeed and outfeed for other tools; and that the planer itself would swing out...
  8. Flip Top Tool Stand with more pics

    Sorry it took so long to follow up on my last post of this project, I just wanted to add more pics of it to show a little more on how it works and was made. I will leave room another pic if someone wants to see a close up of a certain area. I think between my two post of this project...
  9. Flip Top Planer Cart

    This was a project that was much needed in trying to manage space in a one car garage shop. The cart is pretty straight forward. I designed the miter saw recessed area (pic #1 shows cart under miter) many months ago with this cart in mind. I think I'll use the planer more now that I don't...
  10. Flip Top Tool Stand

    I've built a tilt top tool stand for my planer and chop saw: It's mounted on a metal mobile tool base. The bottom is two layers of 1/2" CD plywood from my scrap pile. The side supports are 2×4's cleaned up on the joiner and planer and joined with bridle joints. The top is a torsion box...
  11. Flip Top Tool Box

    I made this wooden flip top tool box this weekend to store some tools, but it can be used as any storage container. I have a link to the video below and in the video I show my larger tool storage box that I made a few years ago. Let me know what you think! Flip Top Tool Box Video Link

    Flip Top table in progress This is a project I started back in September. I would pick at it from time to time in between other projects, and honey-do lists. My garage is 12' x 20', so I need to really think about where things go to make everything fit. I really needed a table for my planer and...

    Fliptop Tool Stand Video I created a video showing the construction of a Fliptop Tool Stand I built for my planer and oscillating spindle sander. My shop, like so many others is inside a small two car garage with some days feels like a one car garage. Space is not something I have a lot of and...
  14. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    Arizona's Jan Brewer needs Help... Fellow Patriots, In case you missed the breaking news, President Obama outrageously announced that he would be granting backdoor amnesty to nearly 1 million illegal aliens. The key word in the last sentence is illegal. This unilateral act is a preemptive...
  15. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    My porject this weekend was a "flipp-top" tool cart. I have a couple plans from a different sources for the carts. This one is for my 12.5" Delta Benchtop Planer. I'm not putting another tool on the other side of the planer as I want this to slide into a recess under a counter that I left...
