    CARVING TOOLS STAND

    Here I show a stand for carving gouges made with a can of food and a wooden block.

    To prevent accidental contact with the edge of the gouges, and at the same time to protect them from dust, I put a cover made from a plastic container.

    Thanks morsa! Your Carving Tool Stand is most definitely a homemade tool, so I've moved it into the Homemade Tools subforum and added it to our Storage and Organization category, as well as to your builder page: morsa's Homemade Tools. Your receipt:

    I like the plastic container cover idea. But what's your reasoning behind the can? Aesthetics, I presume.

    I like the recycling/repuposing, looks magazine worthy and a good way to keep from getting hurt by mistake too.

    Thanks, DIYer.
    I guess you mean why using the can if the wooden block alone could stand for gouges. Indeed, it is just for aesthetics; in the same sense, one could use a non painted tin, but if we take a couple of extra minutes we can achieve good results not only from the functional point of view, but also aesthetic.

    Thanks, jere.
    I also like recycling/repurposing.
    You're right; stand is useful when you're working with gouges as they have the points to look at and you can choose the one required, which would be impossible if the gouges were reversed. It is also useful for storage when not in use because they are protected from dust and the possibility of accidental contact with the tips is avoided.

    Yes morsa, it does look so much neater. I'll be copying your idea, but for my Allen keys which I use quite frequently.

    Neat and purdy. Love the finish on the wooden block. Looks like punched sheetmetal.

    Thanks Altair. The finishing in the wood is metallic (aluminum base) industrial lacquer; in the can, is metallic automotive lacquer, in the same color (remnants of some works).
