Lathe cabinet finally finished. Added the drawers and finally felt like my tools were in their proper home.

First cabinet build, first drawer build for me and all the more challenging as I don’t have a table saw. Certainly learned a lot. You can’t see the flaws in the photos (I hope), but they are there. All in all, its functional and it makes turning much more pleasurable!!!

now, if you’ll excuse me, I have some turning to do.

Much better than hanging tools and accessories on the wall! An excellent way to stay organized and provide for easier cleanup. The stand looks really well done flaws or not. Happy turning!

That looks to be a very productive stand for your lathe. It sure makes turning more fun when you have organization like this. Well done. Enjoy.

Wow, you made that in the toilet workshop with no table saw. You got skillz. lol. Amazing work and love the design. I like your drawer layout and may follow it for mine when I get around to it.
