I have been in shop upgrade mode lately. This should be a big hit around here. My design skills are primitive at best. I made a mockup out of 2×4”s, decided what I liked and didn’t, this is the result.
I’m not worried about it falling over, the base is twice as wide as the top. The legs are half lapped into the feet. The rails are held in with mortise and loose tenons.
There’s plenty of room to see and get any tool I need. They don’t bump into each other when moving the rack.
It has holes for 60 tools. The top shelf is attached with screws from underneath, the middle shelf is not attached, it will lift out. If my needs change, I can change the rack to suit.
Red oak frame, eastern red cedar shelves.
The top shelf is 35 ” x 6 ”, 39 ” up from the floor. Wipe on poly finish.
