It's a rare turning project that can be completed with just a single tool. So how do you keep everything you need handy without cluttering your workspace? The carousel project in this download makes it easy to swap tools mid-task while keeping everything safely organized.

The download includes annotated color sketches of the carousel, with all the dimensions you'll need to build it yourself. Also included is a description of the project by the Fine Woodworking reader who submitted it to our Methods of Work column.
