I had a brand new lathe and some MDF i wanted out of my shop. torsion box construction in the top and legs
legs are filled with sand for added stability. I finished it with Hammered metal paint applied with a rolled. Pretty happy with it except I wish I would have sprung for some real drawer slides.

Well done! I bought that same Lathe this past weekend at WIA, and really like it. I may have to take some notes from yours when I go to build a stand for mine. Good job!

I like the sand in the legs—out of sight.

Wow… Congratulations… Your lathe stand is about to be copied and poorly duplicated!!! Any suggestions or things you learned during the process you care to share?

Very slick. I am looking into making a table for my lathe and you have given me a bit more to think about.
