I was just so pleased to see how many tools I was able to fit on this $13 piece of 3/4 plywood. Beats the hell out of pegboard.

Thanks for looking.

You have empty space – you obviously don’t have enough tools… :)

I’m with Dennis – push yourself for 22 more at least! :-) Nice work.

I do have other tools that I would like to throw on there but I may have to tweak the chisel storage as it currently used too much headroom.

Thanks guys….you put me back to work.

I love it!
Yes tools for wood should be displayed on wood.
My on my workshop wall I have metal pegboards and hate them, so I can’t wait to change this!
Beautiful wood plane in the top right there.
Best thoughts,
Mads

Thanks Mads, that made me smile. I love wrapping my hands around that plane. I have a piece of wenge that I really need to get working on for my jointer. I scored some Cocobolo for a song today and now I will have a VERY long wearing sole for it…but where will I put it? (starts drawing a cabinet)

Wenge is one of my favorite woods.
Yes a cabinet would look good also.
The plane looks like it’s saying ‘hold me’!
