Did I really make this just to display chocolate eggs? – of course not, but a good friend of mine thought it looked the part and kindly adorned it to demonstrate!
Now of course its obvious
The top disc was made from 3 layers of 18mm birch plywood, while the central turned column was made from oak. I use this stand for gouges, while tools made from flat section steel like parting tools and skew chisels can be kept on two magnetic racks on the wall nearby. It seems right that a “Turner” should have a turned stand for turning tools.
