For reasons science is incapable of answering, tools don’t seem to be capable of hanging themselves up. I investigated big box tool hanging widgets and found it would end up costing me a bundle and likely not meet most of my tool needs.
On the other hand, thanks to a good friend I have an abundant supply of 2×4 1/2 inch plywood sheets and pre-painted 3/4 cedar. I took a glance online at what others had done and decided to make a traditional tool wall for my hand tools. I would also make large storage cubbies to go up above, right underneath the garage door tracks. Some of my tools are large and odd shaped, so I had to be creative.
So a few scraps, some glue and a few screws made a huge difference. And I got a lot of satisfaction from such a quick and easy project. Nothing fancy but how great to gather up tools from all over the place and give them each a home. More pictures to come as I hang everything up.
By the way, has anyone noticed what a mess the shop becomes when you are doing a shop project intended to eliminate messes?
