Since getting some machinery from my Grandfather’s estate, I took my lathe down to use the tabletop for the radial arm saw. So, lately I have been getting the bug to set it back up, especially on those bad weather days when I can’t take the table saw to the driveway.
This past week I saw an add for a cabinet shop that was moving to a larger location and was getting rid of unfinished cabinets, counter tops, wood, etc. From my house it was about an hour drive, but thankfully I had some accounts in the area so it was easier to justify it, in case there was nothing worth getting.
Well, I ended up getting the cabinet shell in the second picture and the countertops for free. I then added a base the get the appropriate height, some 1/2” plywood shelves, a door to keep dust off of some supplies, the countertop, and I am now ready to start working on the lathe again.
