I am still on the ‘getting organized kick’ and have wanted to this for some time. I guess my getting a new lathe has inspired me. Made from some inexpensive 3/4 pine board from Lowes.
It measures 35” long x 24” tall x 6” deep. This took me a little more than a 1/2 day. Mine holds 14 tools but you could make it any size you need. The notched holders in the middle started out as 1 board 4” wide. I drilled 1 3/4” holes on my drill press, spacing them on center every 2 1/4”. Then ripped the board in half. The bottom board is angled at about 28 degrees and this seems be perfect. I rounded over all the exposed edges with a 1/8” round-over bit, sanded to 220 and wiped on a few coats of danish oil. Just assembled with some #8 wood screws no glue. I’ve seen guys use PVC pipe but I like this better for cleaning up shavings, not much to get caught in.
“Norwegian Wood” is my business name for craft shows.
Thanks for looking
