I haven’t posted a project in a long time and some encouragement from some LJ buddies has motivated me to start posting again. Recently I have been working more “on the shop” and have made a number of improvements. I’ll try to post more when I can.
I had an opportunity to purchase a small Atlas armature lathe awhile back that came with a Kennedy toolbox filled with cutters and odds and ends. I needed a place to put it and decided that a mobile cart was the answer for me. I used locally cut and dried southern yellow pine, (I just love the smell in the shop when I work with it). FYI the contrasting wood in the panel doors is lighter pine, country folk will know what that means. It was such a pretty rich red/brown that I had to use it somewhere in there. I tried out a new cutter for making drawers that I liked a lot. Sorry no dovetail joints on this one. Most folks can’t understand why I would keep something like this in a workshop. I confess it’s a little over the top for a shop fixture but how could I do it an different?
Now I need to decide what goes in the cabinet.
PS: Sharp eyes have noted that it needs a top. I completely agree and already have one under construction. I had just set the lathe on top of the cabinet for the pictures.
