Hi Lumberjocks, this is my first post and I wanted to share this lathe tool cabinet I recently built.
I have been looking for a way to store my lathe tools, I found some great ideas on the web and compiled them into this cabinet. It stores all my lathe tools and is right above the lathe for easy access. I used plexiglass to hold the tools in there places. the case is made from 1/2 and 3/4 baltic birch and joinery is with box joints. I turned the pulls from maple scraps.
if you are wondering what the reddish staining on the drawers is, i sanded through the veneer, its really thin!!
I am thinking I will make some shop veneer and stick it on the front. (half blind box joints, ha)
The cabinet works great although if I made it again I would have made it bigger.
