I wanted to test out my flip and see how well it recorded in the garage I will be making more videos in the future I think, it’s fun.

This is just a short video showing the lathe stand with the drawers and some comments on what went where etc..

Very nice stand Jeremy.
I may copy your drawer guide technique, for the pull out cabinet I’m making for mine.
Thank you for showing us.
And watch out Wood Whisperer, there’s a new “video kid in town”! lol
Nice job !

Ha, I wouldn’t go that far.
Though after the woodworkers guild meeting, I am making a cutting board video.

I apreciate the confidence you had in my abilities to bid on the cutting board project, I haven’t but I was curious if I was capable so I’m making a few cutting boards anyways.

Came out nice. Thanks for taking the time to make the video. I like the chisel storage. Seems like a good way to keep them.

Hi Jeremy. that is a nice lathe stand with a lot of good ideas incorporated. I could not see the lathe in the video. what kind of lathe do you have.
Also, some advice from using my lathe stand, you may want to put external pulls on the drawers and cover up those hand holes or you will soon have all drawers full of chips. No, you will for sure have drawers full of chips. I get a few in mine if I leave the drawer open at all, but in the front of the lathe, especially, they will bounce in there…...........Jim

A lot of great feedback thank you.

@Jim, I haven’t tried yet I hope it won’t be too much of an issue or I may have to add doors or something in the front to cover everything up.

Nice work, the magnetic bar is a great addition. Also like the idea of the drawers that slide both directions.

Jeremy—Nice job on the lathe stand … the drawer space will absolutely come in handy.

One suggestion … on my stand …Click for details ... I had a lot of vibration noise when I first built it. Turned out, the racket was coming from the drawer. With anything in the drawer, it rattled like a snare drum. I solved that with a piece of a rubber mat cut from a hall runner … they sell it for about $4 a yard in the carpet department at most big box stores. It stays put, dampens vibration from tools, etc. and is easy to keep clean.

That is a really nice piece of work. Those drawers are fantastic. I also really liked the the chisel storage. One suggestion, If you have little kids wandering into the shop, they might try to pick up those chisels. I would suggest a strip of wood that would cover the sharp edges. That would probably be enough to frustrate someone who was looking at the sharp end of your chisels by mistake. GREAT WORK! What kind of lathe are you using?

Again, fantastic work.

@Dwain
Fortunatly I don’t have to worry about little ones running around my shop. The lathe was a central machinery lathe http://www.harborfreight.com/5-speed-bench-top-wood-lathe-65345.html it was on sale a few months back and I couldn’t resist.

I wasn’t really sure if I was going to like turning or how much turning I would do, so the idea of spending a lot on a lathe and tools was really discouraging. With the lathe going on sale, and a month later the sale price for the tool set allowed me to explore wood turning for just over $200.
