Organizer for those quick items I seem to be always grabbing for. Threw this together with a piece of scrap plywood painted black and using scrap PVC 1 1/2 cut a 45* then screwed in. Used rolled up paper towels stuffed in tubes to adjust the height. I have pencils, scrappers, acid brushes, Q tips, Set of tweezers & 2 inch cheap HF brushes for glue and stains.

Nice idea. A person could make and use this for little things. Pencils punches chisels whatever great work.

The bottom of the Pvc. I pre-drilled them then screwed them into the plywood base. I used gray drywall screws and hit them with blak paint. It crude but effective.
