« Part 7: Other Projects - Outfeed Cart Part 8 of Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax series Part 9: Other projects – Evolution of a Shop Vac cart »

So along the way I built a Lathe cart. My lathe isn’t big so I had it sitting on a garage sale table without casters so it was always where ai didn’t want or need it. In keeping with building things with leftover and scrap wood I created it in two parts an upper and a lower. Never to be separated – I just didn’t have any big pieces. I made the top long enough to accommodate a small grinder and when it is not in use I can hang the grinder on the end.

The cart has two full with drawers faced with leftover Ecaudoran plywood and stainless steel hands in keeping with the Sand cart I finish up earlier.

In addition to the drawers I put in a pencil till to make pencil and paper easy to find

The bottom I left open to allow for wood storage.

So far it is working out great – though I need to get in a bit more time on actual turning.
