Drawer cabinet.

I have got a new lathe (Laguna Revo 18-36) and therfore I made a drawer cabinet beneath it. Made out of concrete ply, simply because most of my shop cabinets are made from this material.  The cabinet is 80x40x70(high) cm.

Looks like fine furniture!  What is "concrete ply"?  I've never heard of that before.  Sure looks nice.

Ditto... suppose it'd wreck a chisel if dropped on it.

If your first cut is too short... Take the second cut from the longer end... LBD

A well-organized cabinet and fits the bill for a lathe too. Well done.

What is "concrete ply"? 
Ply with a surface film used for concrere formwork. The surface film is paper impregnated with a glue/resin.

Looks like a great aid to organization in the shop. Well done, Jan!
Aha... caught you out Dutchy... of course everyone that has smelled a tulip knows what Plywood formwork is... it was the "concrete ply" that confused all of us.

Google search knew what to do with it, and then I think it's correct :).

Wij noemen het betonplex en ik en Google hebben dat letterlijk vertaald.
