Finally found time to build a stand/cabinet for my new lathe with extension that’s been sitting in the boxes for close to 4 months. Solid Oak I milled myself from a slab and rough sawn 8/4 stock. The drawers are made from 150 year old English Elm slabs that I milled myself. The top left drawer front has a Ribbon Sappele inlay Inlayed in a Walnut inlay Inlayed in the English Elm drawer front. LOL Lifting casters, Electrical outlet for the AutoSwitch (LOVE the AutoSwitch LOL) and Custom designed Dust Collector with LED lighting that slides back and forth on a T track and telescopes in and out on a 6 inch drawer slide. The finish on the bottom and drawers is just a couple blow overs of lacquer sprayed with an HVLP gun and I just dumped some polyurethane on the top.

Absolutely outstanding. I bet that’s going to be a centerpiece in your shop. That live edge top really takes it to the next level.

the stand is beautiful but my big question is,how does your dust collector work ? that looks like it might be the ticket considering most of the dust and chips flys at you.

Nice solid build. Really like the on/off & dust collection….I know for me that would get me using the lathe more often for sure.

Well done

Thankx, No dust hood gets everything but my design works very well plus the hose is a friction fit to the PVC elbow on the back so I can just pop it off from time to time and suck up surrounding dust.

That’s a sweetheart of a stand by all means. That would make everything in my shop look outdated. Lol.
Great job.
