Sliding door cupboard

Shows the lathe tool holder on one door and a steel shelf in the cupboard which holds wood drying for later turning.

To the left is another sliding door cupboard which holds lathe tools not in immediate use. Behind the lathe, so not well placed to reach for a tool behind the turning lathe. Dangerous! Get the tools you will be using before you start, while the lathe is turned off.

 

 

Tool holder

These are available at Cosco but many other places sell similar items. This one is great because most lathe tool handles fit it.

Designed for brooms actually.

Doors keep the shavings out!

A sliding door cupboard behind the lathe holds a variety of lathe tools, sandpaper, a track for the clamp on light and finishes. Also visible is a magnetic strip that holds some tools to the right of the turning parts of the lathe.

The shelf made by the dust collector is great for all the little bits and bobs needed during turning.

 

Buckets!

These are great for holding a variety of tools. They organize tool use for you by keeping similar tools together. All the 4 inch angle grinder accessories are kept in the bucket along with the tool itself. Etc.

Mechanics sliding drawer cabinets are great for wood workers too.
