    Really nice!

    Wow guys, those storage units are really nice. Great ideas. Once I get to set-up my own shop I'll use your ideas.

    I'm a tad on the lazy side and like my stuff right there so I built this under, and it is attached to, the leg set:

    Hi Jim;
    Here is a pic from a post I made in Shop Tours. The rack is simple, but it holds everything in one place. To free up a bit more floor space, (and get a little more organized) I'm going to make a rack for the wall that leans the tools upright, similar to Jim Young's post.

    Wood magazine, Issue 176, May 2007, on page 14, has a plan for a swing-arm lathe-tool holder that slides into the opening between the lathe ways. If anyone is interested, I can scan the page and post it.
