Just to revisit – project over the holidays was to turn this Wall of Horror
into a new useful shop area – and here is the 98% done result!
Over the holidays I installed the drawers, the drawer fronts and the knobs. Today I bought the locker in which I placed paint, finish, and sundry other items. All I have left to do is the frame and panel doors which I will start working on tomorrow.
The following is a trial fit of the chisel tool chest at my lathe work station. I will install split doors on the chest in which I will mount things like calipers and chuck tools.
I would like to expand the area between the lathe and the cabinet by about 6” so I plan to put in a plywood floor extension from under the cabinet on the floor to about 6” past the concrete ledge give me more room in front of the lathe. As you can see below, the lathe is sitting on the edge of a ledge in the concrete and I will use the plywood floor to push the lathe out past the ledge.
