Being a woodworker long before getting the machinst or metal working bug has provided skills to be able to build a tool chest for my old lathe. I hope you guys enjoy the pictures.
The chest is 18" deep, 24" high and 36" wide. It just fits in the roller stand for the lathe. I accumulated so much tooling I needed a convient place to store and access those tools.
Its made with 3/4 Oak veneer plywood with cherry face frame and solid cherry drawer fronts. The parameter of the drawer edges are beaded with oak. Its is stained with a Pecan
oil stain and dark shellec to warm up the finish. 3 coats of semigloss varnish for some durability from the oils and swarf.
I also installed the Blum 75# self closing bottom mounted drawer suspensions.
Now that I have aquired a small mill I'll need to make something for it as well. Oh well it keeps me out of trouble!!!
