DescriptionA mandrel rack I cobbled together out of some salvaged/scavenged/saved lumber.
The uprights and base are pieces salvaged from stuff people were throwing out. The shelves/rack portion is an old pine shelf composed of 1x4s that I had cut in half a while back to use as shelves in another application. The holes I drilled with a 14 size bit set, so some of the holes are larger than the mandrels, but it works alright. I had to drill the holes with a hand drill, so some of them are a little crooked. I just labeled the holes with a Sharpie. I have since added a piece of pegboard I had laying around for some stability and to keep the mandrels from sliding out the back.
Currently, I only have imperial sized mandrels for this rack, but I drilled holes for trade size mandrels, as well, because I do eventually plan on having some. I'll have to plan something else when I start delving into metric sizes, though.
