Here’s the beginnings of a “Turning Corner” in my shop. Like usual, I borrowed aspects of designs I saw on the web and put my own twist on them.
The stand is built from southern yellow pine. Really just some 2×10 joists I milled up. SYP works wonderfully with and tools. The construction is pretty much the same as the Schwarz sawhorses I've built previously. Just added the lower cabinet for storage. Also, you can see the hidden lower shelf in once pic. It’s filled with scrap steel to weigh down the stand and keep it stable.
The Tool Rack, however, is mostly made of Ash. You can see it’s just a gravity system for them to rest. I chopped some though mortises and wedged them with some mahogany….just cause.
I still have a lot I want to do with this space: lighting, sandpaper rack, etc. It all take a little time and money.
And yes, turning is very addictive.
Take care ya’ll, Red
