Space in my garage is at a premium so I built this flip-top cart to hold my bench top planer and the combination belt and spindle sander. Actually, there’s a law that says you must have a flip top cart in your workspace if your shop is a garage. I rarely need to use these at the same time so I chose these two to utilize the same cart. The cart has 3 inch locking casters making the unit move around easily and can quickly move back out of the way when not in use.
Each unit is plugged into a multi-outlet power strip inside the cart top and one male plug routes out the side. The top comes apart so if I need to get to something inside it’s possible to do so by removing about 10 two-inch screws. Hopefully that will be far and few between.
This design was posted on Fishers Shop and I used his design. There are many examples of flip-carts out there and I like this one the best of those that I watched.
i will probably edge-band some the raw plywood edges and give everything a final sanding and several coats of lacquer or poly-urethane to protect the wood. It’s ready to use, let’s make something.
