Need Ideas for Lathe Base?

Ben Aragon
>Im planning on replacing the steel cabinet that my Powermatic 90 Lathe came with, with a shop built unit. There are several reasons I would like to replace it, the main one is it resonates like a drum at times, it has no tool storage, and Id like a more stable base.

I modified my PM 90 to make it a 20 lathe so the base needs to be stable.

What I would like for a cabinet is:
Made from MDF and Lumber
Tool Storage
A place to add extra weight to the bottom
Leveling feet
Dust collection would be nice

Can I get ideas from what you guys and gals have done or seen for a lathe cabinet base?

Thank You
Ben
