    Lightbulb Doc's Toy Workshop Tool Spinner

    Here's another tool spinner/storage unit thingy that I made ages ago. The revolving bit sits on top of another storage unit on casters.

    To work out which tools I used frequently I laid each tool out on a spare table each time I used it since, like most of us, I have heaps of tools but only actually use a small amount on a regular basis.

    Made mainly from pine since I always have heaps of that on hand, as well as a few bits of ply.

    Four reasonably heavy duty casters allow for easy movement of the spinning part (like a lazy Susan (who was Susan?) and slightly larger casters on the base of the box makes it easy to move around on my concrete workshop floor as required.

    Haven't you ever, by misfortune, managed to drop one or several of your boxes on the flour with the hundreds of screws and pins spread everywhere on the shop ?
    Cheers !

    Thanks for this post, Doc. With the limited space I have, I'm always on the lookout for storage solutions.

    If I make another one (which I probably will) I would put some more storage drawers in the bottom part. Currently it has a large box with jig nick nacks - cam handles, t-nuts and the like but still has a lot of wasted space.

    In a smaller workshop you can make the overall size as big or as small as you want.

    Just remember that if you go taller you will probably need some heavier junk down the bottom to stop the 'tower' from toppling over especially if you plan on moving it around your floor space.

    Regards
