These instructions are a complete step by step guide that will show you how to build a jointer and planer mobile base with drawers for storage and integrated dust collection.

This project is designed to be an EASY build – no crazy joinery.

About the plans:

  • Formatted for normal sized (8.5″ x 11″) printer paper, so you can print them at home.
  • Includes Imperial (U.S.) version AND Metric version!
  • Includes different versions for people of different heights.
  • They also include:
    • A complete shopping list for the materials you need.
    • A complete list of parts you need to cut with all the dimensions necessary (with images).
    • Step by step instructions that accompany and compliment the build video.
    • Instructions on how to modify and/or adjust the unit to accommodate people of different heights. Out of the box, the plans will guide you to build a stand that is perfect for people from around 5’7″ to around 5’11 (170-180cm).

About this Mobile Stand:

  • Standard Version Dimensions: 44″ long x 30″ deep x 27.5″ tall (sets the jointer & planer tables at a standard 30″ height).
  • Tall Person Version Dimensions: 44″ long x 30″ deep x 33.5″ tall (sets the jointer & planer tables at a generous 36″ height).
  • Standard Version Dimensions (metric): 111.8cm long x 76.2cm deep x 68.6cm tall (sets the jointer & planer tables at a standard 76.2cm height).
  • Tall Person Dimensions (metric): 111.8cm long x 76.2cm deep x 85cm tall (sets the jointer & planer tables at a generous 91.4cm height).
  • Accommodates most (if not all) benchtop jointers and benchtop planers.
  • All versions (Standard, Tall, Imperial, and Metric) can be modified for people of different heights.
  • Designed to use fully locking casters – locks roll & swivel.
  • Designed to use high quality Baltic Birch plywood for durability and strength.

Tools required (or at least strongly suggested) to build this project:

  • Table Saw
  • Miter Saw (Not necessary if you have a table saw sled or another way to make good cross cuts)
  • 23 Gauge Pin Nailer (Recommended, but not strictly necessary, you could use other fasteners)
  • Drill
  • 3″ Hole Saw Bit
  • Jig Saw
  • Sander/Sandpaper/File
  • Handplane and chisel (Not strictly necessary, but nice to have around the shop)

    I downloaded these plans. Really liked the design and the concept for grouping this equipment together as a mobile milling station. I finished the project over a weekend and am really happy with the results of the piece as well as the improvements it affords to my garage woodshop.

      Keith, thank you for that awesome review! I’m glad you’re enjoying the milling station!

    I too have found this project easy to build and is a valuable addition to my workshop

      Ray, thank you for taking the time to write your review!

    I really enjoyed how detailed the plans are. I like the idea of having both the planer and jointer together. It took about a few days to build but I was in no rush to build it. I did not even have a planer and a jointer. They were ordered and arrived a few days after I got the station done. I only had to modify the jointer part since the jointer that I was getting was an 8″ jointer. I just extended that part of the station and it worked fine. The plans are very easy to modify. Thanks a lot, Tommy and keep up the videos. They are great. 🙂

      Ray, thank you for the awesome review, and the kind words about my videos! Happy building!

    This is the perfect cart for what I need in my small shop. Have already cut all the parts for the main structure. Drawers will come later. Will start putting it together in about a week.

    I had a bench top jointer and a planer on a flip top stand.; the definition of uselessness. This easily built stand solved the problem. I didn’t put the vacuum feature in it, but rather connect both machines to my larger central dust collector . I was somewhat surprised at how ridged the stand is given the 1/2 ply.

    Tommy thanks for the plans i was looking for a cart to build but didnt know how to draw up the plans these plans where so easy to follow i had a fun time putting the project together. I used the the same wheels and draw slides from amazon. The electric diagram was easy to follow for the plugs.I like the plan for the cart so much i used your vise in i small portable work table. Ill keep looking for new ideas from you site. Thanks so much Jimmy from New Jersey

    These were the only plans I found that really incorporated the planer/jointer to be the most functional for me. Great design and mobility since my shop is small. I just finished it and I’ve had compliments on it already. Thanks Tommy

    Great Project modified it a bit to suit my needs but it was easy since the plan were really well made.

    • Tommy Rich

      Eric, thanks for the review! I’m interested in the mods you made. If you like, send me an email with pics and I’ll post them in the gallery.

    Thanks for the idea and plans for the milling station. I don’t have a great deal of space to work in and this design worked perfectly for my tools. I made some modifications to your design as my joiner is a little wider and I needed a couple more inches on that side. The design made it super easy to modify to fit my need. I also moved the vacuum switch. Thanks again. Great stuff.

  11. Trey Copeland (verified owner)

    This was a fun project and the portable compact milling station is exactly what I needed in my small workspace. The plans were clear and easy to follow and the station came together great. Thanks!

    • Tommy Rich

      Trey, thanks for the awesome review!

    This was my first real woodworking project. Instructions were easy to understand and it was a fun project to do. I also loved that there were different board size and height options. I have not added the dust collection yet but may do so at a later time. I would defiantly purchase plans from you again!

    • Tommy Rich

      Nova, thank you for taking the time to write a review – I’m glad you enjoyed the project!
