Hello Everyone,
its been awhile since my last project was posted
Since my shop is small (16’ x16’ Garage ) Space is important. So I came up with this little idea that has worked well for me and I thought I should use this item to jump back into the lumberjocks community. I cut the plastic covering the brush so that it can be used over and over, then I cut a slot up to the hanging hole creating a hanging hook effect. Add a 5 sided box to suit your brush size with a small rod running down the middle

Now that is a clever idea that I may have to borrow. Thanks for posting it Eagle.

very cool. I get tired of taking three off a nail just to reach the one I always need in the back. I think I might just try that. Thanks

Wonderful idea for storing brushes. I feel sad why this plan did not strike me earlier.

Good idea. I just use long peg board hooks.

Great Idea… I would add a couple of things though… perhaps make it a little taller to handle more varieties of brushes, also I would add some sort of catch tray at the bottom.. we all know how these brushes like to drip…
Will have to build one of these next time I have some scraps laying around…
thanks for posting…
