Even the simplest of projects requires stuff. Fortunately I had everything readily available so didn't have to spend a dime. What I used:
- 2 Pieces of Plywood for the base - about 6" wide by 10" long and 0.5" thick, and the other piece about 5" wide by about 6 inches long. If you have thicker plywood, you will be fine with a single piece of thicker material.
- about 3 foot 3/16 or 1/4" steel rod. Thicker than 1/4" is hard to work with and thinner than 3/16" will be to flimsy
- A small rod and tubing bender if you are after neat and presentible tool, else you can form it with your hands
- Epoxy to secure the rod to the plywood base. I used JB Weld because that was what I had.
- Two #6 wood screws 3/4" long
- Drill bit that matches the steel rod diameter - 3/16" in my case
- Dril - battery/electric/hand whatever you have that can make a hole in wood
- Clothes line wire (or any wire about 1/16" diameter or thicker) for prototyping the shape
If you plan on painting the Spray Paint Gun stand:
- Can of black spray paint preferably something that you can apply to metal and wood direct without a primer. Rustoleum works well for this.
- Can of silver spray paint to create the faux carbon fiber look.
- Tool drawer liner with rectangular holes for the faux carbon fiber pattern
