« Part 41: The Ultimate Shop Cart is finally finished!!!!! Part 42 of The Stumpy Nubs Workshop series Part 43: Drill Press Table with Table Saw Style Fence and a lot more! »

After a particularly enjoyable ride with the mother-in-law on a ferris wheel, Stumpy takes that good old American “carney” knowledge and creates a flip-top tool stand that rotates instead of flips, and holds four tools or machines rather than two! Plus a great tip for stone sharpening without making a mess, a free jig plan that turns your woodworking vise into a “super-duper” woodworking vise, and more on the latest episode of Blue Collar Woodworking!

We can't embed videos on Lumberjocks right now, so you'll have to go watch it here. Enjoy! Then come back and leave a comment so we know what you think!

I tried to see what you are offering but loading the page seems to crash my IPad. Tried several times, no luck.

I like the concept, but it looks bulky.

Good stuff there, Stumpy.

Well all that needs is some seats and a motor and you’ll already be on your way to opening your very own midgit only carnival ride.
Seriously though. Is there a way to make a handle on the inside of the wheel sides? When I seen the way you were using the handle cutouts to rotate it, although they work, I thought of someone pinching their hands there and blaming the stumpster. Then of course stumpy is going to blame it on Mustache Mike. And let’s face it. Mike is getting too darn old to be blamed for such shenanigans when Randy gets on the sugar high from the cotton candy stand and goes crazy with that thing.
Good show Stumpy.

Another great idea and video… very cool…. Love the humor on using the digital tools and then measuring the welt…
