Don’t know if you spotted this yesterday, but I ‘finished’ my wolverine clone and mounted it to the wall next to my lathe.

today I decided to throw together a tool rack:

quick, efficient and budget friendly (the PVC was $4)

cut the pipe on the miter saw, at 22.5° so that shavings can be cleared out easily. the shelf was a left over leg from a bench I don’t have room for.

Drilled pilot holes on the Drill press and that made putting the pipes up very easy. Leveled the shelf off, then leveled the bar that the pipes mount to above it as well.
Eventually I plan on turning the lathe 90° to the wall so I won’t be reaching across the lathe to get tools.
