I used up a bunch of scraps and came up with this. 1 stop shopping for my Dremel. The only thing I didn’t have laying around is a lazy susan bearing for all the bits.

The top bar swivels. I just used a couple of fender washers as a bearing, with a lag bolt holding it on. Rare earth magnets keep the wrenches secure.

It’s best to store a flex cable by hanging, never roll it up . It’s as ugly as a mud fence, but it works very well. I made it a comfortable height for me. I sit at the bench and the cable stays out of my way. It rolls under the steps when I’m done.

I was inspired when I saw IV carts in the hospital a while back. I knew they were good for something else.

lol… yeah, what are they thinking using those carts for IV’s, when you’ve obviously proven there’s a much better use for them. Great job man. I can see something like that in my future.

No space for Gouges, chisels, or mallet ? Looks good for 1/10 of the supplemental tools a wood carver might use. ........Sorry…....., I am just an old school dude who wishes old school techniques weren’t dying out as fast as they seem to be these days. (forgive an old wood carver/sculptor for lamenting lost earlier times) This is good work and as utilitarian as you can get, and Very nicely done. goodon’ya.
