I needed a new Lathe Table, and this is what I came up with. It’s solid oak except the lower shelf, so it’s heavy enough without added ballast, and it has locking casters so I can move it in and out of the shop. I kept this size as small as possible to accommodate my smaller shop.
I think it is definitely an upgrade from my old one, (last picture)! LOL
Thanks for looking and have a great day.

That is awesome! It caught my eye because my partner is in the process of building one for his lathe. He got all the wood cut the other day. Yours is really nice and quite an upgrade from you old one. It looks like it will serve you well. :)

Very nice!
It’s nice to be able to move it around. The color makes it look spectacular.

Look here, if you want to see why I like the color. I’m just proud of my old lathe.

well done there wreck

maybe some insert cab with drawers
for the tools and supplies
(if not to heavy)
could just sit on the lower shelf
and be taken off if needed

just a thought

Nice looking table. I have a full size lathe I’ve been trying to unload cheap but no takers. I just have never gotten into turning…

Good work!

Very nice work.
Especially in comparison to your old one.
Smart idea about casters… I have everything on casters in my shop… sometimes I’m even on casters!

I like it!

Plenty of room under it for storage or ballast.

It is great lathe stand for great lathe, I like the depth of the lathe which enable you to turn larg diameter projects.
Hope to see it and the table covered with shaving and sanding dust.
