a The rack is held securely in place by driving screws through a cleat and into the wall.
At this point, the parts that make up the outer frame of the tool rack are complete. But before assembling them, I added a tool rest that spans the inside of the frame, see Fig. 4.
The tool rest does exactly as its name implies. To prevent the tools from falling out (or tipping to the side), the rest cradles each blade in a curved notch.
There's nothing complicated about the tool rest. It's a piece of W-thick hardwood with a tenon centered on each end that fits the mortises in the sides.
notches. Once the tenons are cut, you can turn your attention to the curved notches. To keep the tools aligned, the notches are centered on the holes in the base.
After laying out the notches, I drilled holes to form the ends of the notches, see Fig. 5. Then I removed the remaining waste using the table saw, see Fig. 5a.
Note: To accept my roughing gouge, I cut the notch on the far right side a bit larger than the others, see top photo in margin.

see Figs. 6 and 6a. Since the tool blades are bound to knock against the rest, this will help prevent the edges from chipping.
mounting cleat. After gluing up the rack, I added one final piece — a cleat (E) that's used to secure the rack to the wall, see bottom photo in margin. The
cleat is a strip of hardwood giued^^ flush to the back edge of the tool^P rest, see Fig. 4.
After mounting the tool rack,
I immediately added my new turning tools. Stepping back, I only allowed myself a few minutes to admire it. After all, it was time to start turning.
