Don’t need a lot of skill to make a free standing turning tool rack and plenty of designs images/plans and videos online. Just have to decide whether want bottom or tops up or tools laying on their side and some scrap wood. Of course do you want it mobile or stationary?

Have a small shop so mine mobile years ago using scrap wood. Made mine with drilling differen size holes with forstner bits to fit different tool handles up. Wheels are from old dining room chairs.

I have mine in drawers under the lathe. To keep the ends from hitting the back of the drawer I used foam padding. This will work but not for larger lathe tools like Joe has. Storing them tip up to me is just begging to cut myself. Father Murphy works like that when you tempt him.

thanks for the suggestions, the lazy susan styles would work best for me. I have been able to find picture but no plans . Any body got any Ideas where I can find plans. I already have 15 tools so I will one that can hold more, room to grow thanks

I have an office chair base I’ve been saving, might make something like Joe’s tool stand.
