This is a picture of the new lathe cabinet I just designed and built. The cabinet is made of 3/4” MDF with a 3/4” solid oak frame. Four drawers made of 1/2” plywood hold all my lathe tools and router bits. Been checking out the shops and projects in Lumberjocks and think its a great idea. Will post some of my more recent projects. The table is a lathe stand but can also be used as a outfeed table for my takesaw as well as a small assembly table. The wheels are great and enable me to move the cabinet easily as I have my shop in my 2 car garage and need to move my tools around.

Thanks for sharing a picture of your lathe cabinet. It looks good. I have got to add a lathe to my tool collection.

Thanks for the post.
