    Lathe Cabinet

    Finally got my lathe moved over to the new cabinet I built. Still need to make some drawers and doors for it though.

    Looking good, Darren. Now you need to get those boxes out of the way and dirty it up with some curlies.

    Yeah, been in moving mode for a while. Looks like we're staying put til spring, so need to get things organized again.

    Nice cabinet. Your lathe needs a focus adjustment.

    No, that's the way I feel around it, unfocused. That's why I haven't hardly used it.

    Darren, looks good so far. Aren't doors a great invention? People think I have a clean wood shop... until they open the doors Keep up the good work.

    Thanks Jason. Hey was looking around your site, you do beautiful work. However, I'm intrigued by your work bench. Can you post a pic of it. Looks like it would be a really handy.

    The one you have the rails clamped to in this one:

    Darren, my first thought was, "What work bench?" I don't have a traditional work bench and really, really, really need to build one. The one that you're talking about is the Festool Multifunction Table. It is extremely helpful and I'm always finding new ways for it to give me a hand. You can do a google search and get tons of info about it. There are a number of full length reviews as well. I use it all the time, and while it was not cheap, it's been a real help to me.
