Easy Pallet made Yard Tool Storage

09-28-2013 01:06 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 1 comment »

I was tired of walking around tripping over shovels, rakes, brooms, and whatever else was laid around. I didn’t want to buy one of those plastic corner tool storage things from the local big box store so I made one a few years ago. After yard duties have evolved, so has the collection of tools.

This does not qualify as woodworking, so I’ve placed it here. I don’t have a lot of use for a marking gauge, so I didn’t want to splurge on a manufactured one. I decided to try making a small marking gauge that would have brass elements. I like the look of brass and I’m a cheapskate to boot. I found a plumbing fitting which I felt would work.

Here is my attempt at making a video of how I made it, and as always you can check out my website at: www.woodlogger.com to see more projects and videos of what I’m doing in the shop.
