I couldn’t find a stand anywhere for this old craftsman Lathe. So I made a Stand From standard 2X4’s with some cool angel cuts. Then I Painted it with Hammered Silver rattle can paint. A Lot of coats. It worked out Perfect.

Nice,
I thought it was steel until I read about it.
Having fun with angles, good challenge.

Grate job on the stand!
If you felt like it you could throw down some ply wood and make a shelf on the bottom section for Ez tool storage and extra weight. Or you could just enjoy working on your awesome lathe with custom stand. Either way looking good!

-- I love my lathe. It’s old, not too pretty and I don’t really know how to use it… Love it!

yeah, like jbay – at first glance I knew it was steel and thought ‘why on a wood forum’ ?

Pretty cool

Came out awesome, looks like you spent some time sanding down a 2×4, fun yeah? :-)

I’m with blue77, a ply shelf would be a handy addition.

Ply shelf would be good but might be a dust catcher. Thought of one for my stand but didn’t due to dust.

Got the exact Lath and Metal Stand that goes with it gathering dust in my workshop ;-) The shelf underneath was particle board so after a year it started to sag as well as it being a great dust collector
