When I built my Lathe table a while back, (49437http://lumberjocks.com/projects/49437) my friend David (LJ Patron) suggested an insert cabinet with drawers and such to store the tools. Lathes have a lot of accessory tools!
Knowing David rarely makes a bad suggestion, I decided to design and make one while waiting for some parts from another project to be delivered.
This is what I came up with. The whole project uses reclaimed material.
I try to use reclaimed stuff as much as possible, to save the land fills and my wallet.
It is a solid oak dovetailed case, with oak drawers and a tool shelf that fits in the upper cabinet.
I set the size to fit the table dimensions and kept it removable in case I want to use it for another application down the road.
So far it has worked out great.
The finish is Minwax Classic Oak Polyshade and Briwax.
Thanks for looking
