I originally made a lathe chisel storage rack for about 10 chisels. Over time my chisel collection grew and I ran out of storage space very quickly. I decided to construct a new rack to handle all my chisels. Having all the chisels on hand I decided to build the rack in four section to handle the various size chisels.This is what I came up with.

The material is red oak and I used my Festool Domino tool to secure all the parts together. Once assembled I finished the rack with Spar Urethane.

I really like this tool rack!! I have had a lathe for a long time with just the basic tools but I am starting to get into turning more projects and thus collecting more lathe tools. I am going to favorite this so I can hopefully have a rack this nice one day!!!!

Norm – really liking this design! Might have to R&D it (rip off and duplicate ;)

Glad to see another CT resident on here! Actually just started on the lathe the past few months

Have your say...
