It was an old lab chair. It’s now a lowboy gouge and accessory cart. It’s Pimp.

As a side note you can see the new to me Woodfast m408 lathe here. It is a great machine. Built like a tank.

Great idea, I’m in the market for a new office chair, I can see a future for my old one, right next to my lathe.

Thanks.

I just drilled 2” holes in some OSB and put 6” of 2” pvc pipe in the hole. Then put a coupling piece on top and put a cap on the bottom. Drill a 1/2” hole in the cap so the blade of the gouge goes through. The center where the original seat bolted on makes a nice flat area where the one or two gouges go that you are currently switching between. The lower ring was just a bonus area. I am going to drill some more holes to put different tool rests on. I currently have this bowl lathe and a smaller pen lathe and this is really nice to just roll between the two. I just roll it under an adjacent work bench when done.
