I added a simple mobile base to raise the height of the lathe and a small cabinet with drawers to hold my lathe tools.

That is an excellent I idea, something that I need to do pretty quick. I just got a lathe and it is driving me nuts because I don’t have a proper place to put things. I don’t know how long it was have taken me to come up this idea on my own.

Another HF #34706 owner here too! Great idea. Did you have plans you worked from? Does it offer a good amount of ballast / stability?
