Wheelbarrow Planer Stand

Wheelbarrow Planer Stand


 



A mobile planer stand isn't new, but the modifications I added to mine just might be. When I lift the handles, the legs lift off the floor for easy moving, just like a wheelbarrow. When I set it down, all the feet sit firmly on the ground and the handles fold down and out of the way. The whole stand with hardware cost me about $35. The nonswiveling 3-in. wheels are attached to support boards that extend 6 in. beyond the front legs. I installed the supports so the wheels are about 1/8 in. off the floor when the stand is resting on all four legs. The handles, which taper to 1-1/2 in. at the grip end, are joined to each other with a stretcher and attached to the rear apron with 3-in. T hinges. I attached the strap leaf to the underside of the handle first and attached the other leaf to the rear apron. I installed the hinges this way because the screws hold better in the handles' face grain than in their end grain. The 20-in. x 20-in. top is 2x4s glued together. The rest of the stand is simply glued and screwed together. To prevent the planer from sliding, I bolted it to the stand.
