I needed a lathe tool rack to house my growing inventory of lathe tools. This is what I came up with. It’s fabricated with the shipping crate my lathe came in and a bit of 1 1/2 in pvc. The paint just makes it look pretty and blend in with the shop. I’ll be putting a cheap paper towel holder under it as well.

The next project is a tool cabinet to house the other lathe tools…. I’ll post it when I build it.

Looks like a nice neat solution. Good idea that you left some empties for future purchases.

That is a great tool rack. A lot of thought went into that rack. I like it that you can see all the ends for ready ID of each tool!!

cheers, Jim

Great use for the lathe shipping crate. I made an intricate segmented bowl out of my lathe shipping pallet. This bowl is somehow very special to me. Your tool storage unit is a good one. I think I will incorporate your idea into one for myself.
