« Part 22: ShopQuest 2014- Lathe Set UP!! Part 23 of Workshop series Part 24: ShopQuest 2014- Wood Rack Revisited »

Since I got the new lathe set up my sharpening system that resided at the end of my old lathe needed a new home.

The current stand being table top was a bit too short to use properly.

I decided the best bet was a quick and simple stand. Built out of some left over 2×4s.

So a few hours later and we are good to go.

I have some new tools coming in and I am looking forward to getting use out of them. I do plan to doa little more with my sharpening jig this year and get a cut on my tools.

Happy to say I got a good amount of time in the shop and this was the first project, most of the rest was prepping but I did manage to clean up and out some small scrap wood. I am also happy to say that I did not just toss it, I called my daughter’s old daycare and the were happy to receive 2 boxes full of wood for the kids to play with and make projects out of.

Until later…

Always interesting to see how others set up their shop. Always need ideas.

Nice sturdy stand. Sure beats bending over to do anything.

That pocket hole joinery will hold that together for a long time.

Looks like the belt/disk sander can use a brother to the grinder stand!

Then you can have “twins” and Clear more of that “can’t throw it” lumber up.

Neat job should work well.. Probably could use wheel system of some kind! Make some out of 2 by 6 and a flop-over cam lock. That has to go the other direction to unlock.

Thanks all,
rjR I was pushing around whether I had enough to make a second one yesterday. I think I will as I want to get that sander on something more substantial. That one will have wheels so I can stow it when need be. The grinder is pretty much where it is so I am good with that one not having wheels. I may try to jump on it it tonight, the day has already gotten away from me as far as shop time is concerned.
