This is just a simple shop project, made with scrape plywood & pine. No fine finish carpentry on this. Took an old Steelcase office chair apart, cut up some circles, drilled some holes and screwed it together. Skill level beginner, fun level expert, time in shop priceless

Clever idea. Looks like it would work well.

Wish I could take credit for this idea, but I was watching someone turning on Youtube and saw a carousel like it in the background

I have to say I like it a lot. Built a similar one couple years ago but with only one level. With a few more tools I made myself, I’m running out of room. May have to use this design to hold more tools. Thanks for sharing. Great mobile base.

Good one David. So far I only have use for the one tier, but I left it open so I can add more as the need arises. Thanks again for the inspiration.
