Supersize your mini-lathe with this all-in-one lathe stand and workcenter.
A mini-lathe packs some pretty serious turning capability into a tiny package. But just because they are small doesn’t mean that you can set your mini-lathe up on a wimpy, lightweight stand. Just like a full-size lathe, a mini-lathe needs a stand that is heavy and rigid enough to absorb vibrations. The lathe stand shown here certainly meets those criteria, but it also offers a lot more. The top is extra large to give you room for a grinder or a bed extension. A large drawer provides plenty of space for lathe accessories. And a pair of specialized tool drawers keep all your turning tools ready to go at a moment’s notice. A couple of shelves offer a place to keep turning blanks and other supplies. And to top it all off, this stand is mobile — which is especially convenient if you have a “mini”-shop to match your lathe.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
