Thank you.

It's not the prettiest or best built piece of flat work ever but I got exactly what I wanted so I'm happy with it.  There were no plans, I just built it as I went and solved problems as they arose.  The single biggest problem was getting the glue to dry.  There are no screws in it, I wanted to see if I could build it without any, just for a bit of amusement but the amusement soon evaporated when I had to bring every stage into the house to dry (it was Winter) and, as the build progressed the pieces got bigger.  The day, near the end, when my wife came home and couldn't traverse the kitchen without crawling under the huge clamps was the only time she suggested I had better get the trolley built soon and out of her kitchen so I did well on the spousal irritation front because she had tolerated about 8 days of glueing until then.

If I were doing it again I would replace the TV stand wheels at the start, they are not really designed for constant movement on a floor covered with rubbish and I would use screws to build the carcase - screws would allow this to be built in an afternoon. The other thing I would do would be to either supervise the cutting of the ply sheet in the timber yard or do it myself - I ended up with slightly differing widths but two were identical so I used those as sides.

I have been using this for about 8 months and, so far, there's nothing I would change (apart from the wheels which broke).

Edit today - the replacement castors arrived this morning so, half an hour and two 10mm holes to drill at the back and the job is done.  I'm very pleased, I went for 3" rubber wheel castors and they move about easily on the sawdust and concrete.

Alright, I guess I'll join in also. 

Here's my small (~6x8) turning room.  I think I can get a Nova 1624 in here, some day!  Three pictures from just outside.

Nice site Jeff.  One of these day I'm going to make one up for myself.  If I can figure it out.

All you obsessive-compulsives have won... you have shamed me into tidying up my shop.  I thought I would have finished tonight but even I underestimated the depth of the grime and rubbish.  Eight bin bags of shavings later and I'm on the shelves (which will probably produce another bag full).  Hopefully I'll have a little video up tomorrow night.

Thanks Ken.  The working area is about 12' x 8' but the shed is 23' x 15'.  However, I have a motorbike, ride-on mower and assorted other 'essentials' to accommodate.  I store the ride-on in the turning area and pull it out into the centre of the shed for access.
