Very nice Jim are there plans of putting items like chucks & such in the drawer too. The reason I ask this question is the drawer seem a little deep for just turning tools?
I am planning to build a new base for my lathe with 1 or 2 deep drawers at the bottom of the lathe for lathe chucks & the bigger items that are used for this hobby. The other drawers will be shallower for the turning tools & the tools will be with the cutting tips forward in the drawer with the steel setting on a magnetic bar so the working end is in view when the drawer is opened.
Another thought is to mount the tools this way on a board that will just lay in the drawer.
