I posted this here, since it isn’t what I would call a “project”. However, I would call it a “shop project”. LJ’s should have a “Shop Project” place to post, yep, shop projects. ............... Just sayin.
Any-hoo, I’ve been getting my shop back in shape and functioning. I’m still not finished, but, getting very close. I am really liking the extra elbow room. Lots to do. OH, yea, about this little rack. I’ve always wanted to re-do the rack I had all my lathe tools in, and, it finally happened. With scraps, and, check it out, pool cue clips. They work incredible well, and they are incredibly wallet and purse friendly. You can buy them here: http://www.iszybilliards.com/item/10_Count_Brass_Finish_Pool_Cue_Billiard_Stick_Rack_Clips/872
I rabbeted 2 pieces of plywood, after boring holes half-way through every 2” with a 1 1/2” forstner bit. Thnx for lookin in, and any comments, good/bad/ugly. Always appreciated.

Don’t get too close to my “big-gulp-gator”..... He luvs to eat the dust I make. :)

Looks like a very efficient rack. Seems like a very sure way to keep them in place. Its nice to see which tool you want to use with just a glance. I like your idea about shop projects.

Roger that’s about as handy as pockets on a shirt. Nice addition to the old shop.

I’m doing a little rearranging myself and I need to build something similar. I am tired of digging through the shavings trying to find the right tool. Thanx for sharing!

I like the cue clips Roger. I think these can be utilized for other purposes too. Great job.
