I sold my 15×38 Craftsman lathe ( with the shelves under it) last weekend so I lost the machine I did my buffing on and also the storage for so many of the accessories for my Nova lathe. I decided to make a storage cabinet for all that stuff plus have a place to mount my HF mini lathe on and set it up for pens. I had this Grizzly knife buffer in my way on my regular workbench so I mounted it on the back of the stand for buffing. I have an adapter on it to accept my Beall buffing system.

The cabinet is 19” x 31” x 36” high. It is made from plywood I had laying around and a laminate covered Steelcase top . I just had to buy the hinges and the casters. I put a shot of the caster that I bought on E bay.They are 3” and lock the wheel and the swivel with the one lever.

I put a long cord on it and mounted 2 duplex outlets so I can plug in both machines and 2 other things if needed.
I add 3 cord spools on it to keep the cords managed and out of the way. The doors have 4 – 10mm magnets mounted in them for closure. It is finished with gray latex enamel!

Cheers, Jim

Nice addition to the shop Jim and getting your storage back. Utilizing it for two tools is the way to go. Of course it must be on castors.
