Woodsmith Flip-Top Tool Stand Plans

Maximize your shop’s floor space by mounting two tools to a mobile stand. Just roll it out of the way when the job is done.



Benchtop tools are great space savers, but they can still fill up a small shop in a hurry. That became clear to me one day when I realized I had more tools than I had benchtops to put them on. So after clearing a small space to do some drawing, I came up with this tool stand. It does double-duty by fl ipping its lid. What makes this stand different from most others is that you can mount a tool on both sides of the top. Then when you want to use a different tool, all you have to do is flip the top 180°.
