I made this to hold my lathe tools. It swings out over the bed of my lathe or back against the wall underneath a wall cabinet.

Bowl gouges won’t fit under cabinet unless inserted edge-down and carbide tools get their own rack.

Nice, I like it, I have been thinking of something similar to go under a workbench with the lathe on top, great idea!
