Just finished up this lathe tool holder the other night and just got the pictures done tonight. It is based on a design that I saw in a magazine some time ago. I changed the one on the magazine by making it a double row holder, I made it a little narrower, and I mounted it on a stand instead of on the wall. I put it on a stand because I like to pull the lathe out in the middle of the shop when I am really going to make a good mess.
The whole unit is made from construction grade pine lumber.
The first picture is the holder, then second picture is the holder a little closer up. The third picture is the holder in place behind the lathe. Finally, no more lathe tools falling off of the shopsmith tubes and landing on the sharpened edge.
