Working in a small shop necessitates space conservation and tooling mobility. Since acquiring a lathe last July, the shop was adjusted to accommodate the machine along with an array of accessories. A solution to the accumulation of lathe tools required some thought. How to provide ease of use while turning and quick-out of the way- stowage. The lathe easel seemed to be a workable answer. The lower rack pivots allowing easy tool access. The loaded easel is quite stable, performs it function well and folds-up flat against the wall when not needed.
