Here it is, a basic stand for keeping my turning tools easily accessible and identifiable.
I am starting to do a spring clean and rearrange in the shop while working on projects so, small steps are the only thing I am able to get to right now. This was one of those “I need to do” projects to get the tools off of the table top and to keep them from banging into each other all the time. I probably don’t need to mention all of the wood shavings that would bury them and then I would have to dig through it all to get to the right tool! ha ha
I was inspired to get this one done by seeing Roger's tool rack he made. Thanks Roger!
It’s pretty simple construction with plywood, glue, screws, staples and some cheap ($.97) flat black spray paint from the HD. It is freestanding and can be moved if necessary and I made it so I could tilt the rack back farther for tool clearance when turning a bowl, or anything that needs it.
Loosen the wing nut, remove the pin, tilt back and reinstall the pin and tighten the wing nuts. Do it again in the other direction and it back upright again!
Thanks for looking!
