    On wheels so it can move around.

    I hang mine from the support tubes. The bottom is a little under 2" from the floor.



    Always be yourself because the people that matter don't mind, and the ones who mind, don't matter.

    This is what I came up with. I've since added handles, but works great for me, plus adds weight to the lather.

    Jay, the upper portion is basically open storage with two drawers in the middle and open cupboards on either end. The lowers are pictured.

    Re: lathe storage cabinet ideas?

    Turning is the area of woodworking that I do the least but I do have the basic tools and many of the accessories. In an effort to keep them all in one place, I built a rolling lathe stand with a bank of drawers and cabinet under the lathe. The stand also has a folding leaf top extension to accommodate the lathe bed extension for turning longer pieces.

    Does your bed ext. bolt on normal or did you change it to make it faster to move on and off the lathe?

    Tom. The bed extension bolts on normally which is sort of a PITA. The last time I used it, I decided to come up with a quick connect/disconnect solution but have not gotten around to it as yet.
