We recently purchased a new metal lathe for the shop. Rather than buy a stand I wanted to make a custom one that fit with the design of the shop.

I used a Euro cabinet style construction and created a mobile cabinet on wheels. It is a very heavy duty build entirely out of 3/4″ plywood, since the lathe weighs about 480 lbs (217 Kg).

This build features an extremely easy to build drawer style for those who don’t want dovetailed drawers. If you are interested in how to build dovetailed drawers I have a very comprehensive tutorial in Part 2 of my Extreme Miter Station build series. https://youtu.be/lybeI_CBpHw

This is a great shop project which can work as a lathe stand or any bench top tool stand, such as a planer, jointer, etc. or simply as a mobile work bench.
