I like the idea of the transparent door. I have a few things behind doors that I haven’t opened in months and I fear are lost forever. Nice design, Al and thanks for posting the blog as well.

I like the lathe tool carousel as well. I have to keep my stuff under cover, with the un-heated workshop, but it’s a nice design. Al, could you tell us more about the pink wheel? I don’t believe I’ve seen one of those. And I like your bowl and spindle steadies, too.

Thank you all.
The grinder is the Delta dual-speed grinder.
Some details on the grinding wheels, taken from the Woodcraft web site:
Aluminum Oxide Grinding Wheels are a giant step above the conventional gray, hard, slow cutting wheels which tend to burn tools as the grinding surface becomes dull and glazed. Made of granulated aluminum oxide with a vitrified white bond, they allow the grains of abrasive to wear off, thus providing a consistently fresh grinding surface.Sharpening is faster, with less danger of taking the temper out of the tool6” dia. wheels come with bushings to reduce the arbor hole to fit 3/4”, 5/8”, and 1/2” shafts8” wheels have reducer bushings to fit 3/4” and 5/8” shaftsPink Aluminum Oxide Grinding Wheels provide you with all the benefits of white aluminum oxide wheels with the added bonus of being more resistant to grooving when reshaping or heavy sharpening is required.Although they do resist grooving, they still allow grains of abrasive to wear off rather than becoming dull and glazed Since they do not build up glaze and metal particles, heat build up is reduced thereby preventing “blued” toolsThe perfect companion to compliment your white sharpening wheel

Wow! This is a beautiful kitchen island that you’re using in the shop.

”Wow! This is a beautiful kitchen island that you’re using in the shop.”
I never thought about it that way – but, you may right! We don’t have any kitchen cabinets with glazed doors, although I am getting ready to make four or five of them, to match the existing 42 doors.

The wheels will allow sharing the station.
