This plan is from “Small Shop The Complete Guide.” I didn’t have any 1/2” plywood scraps on hand so the frame is made from 3/4” ply, hardboard tray base and trimmed out with scrap pine. There is lazy susan hardware on the bottom so it spins to make all of the slots accessible. Seems to work very well and I was able to put it together in one day.

Now that’s a handy addition to any shop. I better go take another look at that book.

Thats cool little storage… do you have more pictures? I want to try and build something like that. Maybe give us some size so we can get the ideas?

@grantlairdjr – The plans came from the free ShopNotes magazine on Small Shops:

I can certainly take some more pictures and put some dimensions in writing, but I’d suggest going to the above link and filling out the form. You will get the free sample plus this issue that includes the full plans.

That’s pretty clever and is very efficient storage for room consumed. With heavier turntable you could even make it taller and be even more efficient. Good work.
