Haven’t posted any projects for awhile but I have been busy. I’ll try to catch up a bit. I needed a better, heavier grinder stand and in a small shop, more storage. I based this on one I saw in American Woodturner a few months ago. It’s 16” deep by 20” wide by 40” tall including the wheels. The height allows me to stand staight up while sharpening my lathe tools. The bottom 5” of the cabinet contain 50lbs of sand to counter the weight of the grinder on top. It has four 2 1/2” Woodcraft double lock casters and rolls quite easily. The drawers inside allow quite a bit of storage for various lathe and sanding accessories. On the side I used 2 broom clamp hangers for the sharpening jig accessories and also a Thompson 2” depth gauge for the Wolverine sharpening system. This grinder stand is made from plywood doors salvaged from a demolition at a remodel job I helped on a couple of years ago. The drawers from scrap plywood I had laying around the shop. I had the hinges, broom hangers and door handle laying around the shop. The only thing I bought extra was the wheels and a bag of sand.
