The original idea for this came from Gerry(TheDane) and is in another project. As I used my chucks and changed from one to another I would lay them on the lathe headstock, table to right of lathe, router table to the left of lathe or anywhere close. I didn’t have a specific place to put them. I got to looking at the tool holder and thought a shelf under it would be nice so I could have a place to store them close by. Thought about just attaching one to the bottom but didn’t like the way it would look. So I dissembled the original holder and reused the separator sections and completely rebuilt it. 4th pic shows the layout lines for the cutouts. Now I have a dedicated place for my chucks, jaws and lathe tools all in one place. I like to at least be semi-organized.
One other thing about the placement of the tool holder is I put the tools up as I use them and don’t have them laying around on the lathe bed (most of the time anyway) as I werk.
This cabinet is made from pine.
