This easy-to-build cart turns a small benchtop planer into a compact workstation.
Even though some thickness planers are marketed as “benchtop” or “portable,” their size and weight make moving them around a hassle. This planer cart is a great way to get more from this essential machine. The cart provides storage and an extra worksurface. As a bonus, there’s a built-in auxiliary table for planing thin stock.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
