Looks good and very practical, I hope your feeling better.

Hey pin cushion that’s a cool idea. One more level and you got a fishing pole stand. Great project William.

Good Concept. I just finished a free standing tool storage for my lathe tools. Hope you are feeling better soon.

I try to give credit when I use someone elses design, but I can’t remember who’s it was. I seen this design on someone’s shop posting here on Lumberjocks. It was similar anyway.

Nice carousel, even without any horses! I will have to build me one of these. But before I do, I think I should get some turning tools first, or should I get the lathe first! Decisions, Decisions, Decisions!!!

My lathe isn’t a great one, but I don’t claim to be a great wood turner. It’s one of those things that I tinker with now and then with intentions of getting better at. I can turn basic things I need though.

The one I have I bought second hand from my buddy KTMM. I can’t remember, been a couple of years now, but I think I give around a hundred for it.

Just don’t spin it to hard. I’d hate to see them shooting out like a gatling gun…..

Thank you everyone.

I was a little reluctant to even post this as a project. I decided to do so because it went with the last couple of projects and involved the sharpening quest I’ve been on. I felt bad calling it a project.

The actual construction took about thirty minutes.
Use a compass to draw two circles. Then draw a smaller circle on one of those.
Cut the two circles out on the bandsaw.
Screw the two circles together.
Mark evenly spaced marks around the smaller circle you drew.
Use a forstner bit to drill a hole on your marks large enough for your lathe tool handles. Drill through one board and part way through the other.
Turn it over.
Use a forstner bit the same size as the mounting dowel. Drill in the center about halfway through the bottom board.
Drill four half inch holes in four places around the circle all the way through.
Determine the length of your shortest lathe tool.
Cut four dowels that length and put through the half inch holes. I glued an shop brad nails in mine.
Drill and mount dowel into lathe stand or wherever you wish it to be mounted.
Insert dowel into mounting hole. I put a screw in mine to hold it there.
Place carousel over dowel.
Enjoy.
