Had to build a stand for my Lathe. Tool drawer is bottomless so tools are accessible without filling up drawer while turning work.

That is a great bench and will be a fine addition to your shop.

I’m in the process of building a cabinet for my Nova. I like how you organized the drawer with the calipers and chucks…...Well done.

Nicely done, it’s just beautiful!
I really like the open bottom drawer you can get at you tools but the shaving just fall though, way cool.

Great idea with the bottomless tool drawer!

The bottomless drawer makes my butt pucker a bit. Knowing that eventually one of my tools will fall through and land tip first onto the ground. I’m thinking a sliding bottom drawer….........slides out to dump the shavings that will accumulate.
Still a clever build….....just be careful.
