New tool holder for my shop. I made it from scraps I had laying around my shop. I do not like peg boards and did not want to make a french cleat system. So I came up with this new idea. Hooks and hangers on lattice . When the lattice is spaced tight the hooks fit snug so they don’t fall out when handling tools. This system works great and looks nice.

Tools can be added and moved around without drilling new holes. I also made a few small tool holders, I just put hooks in the back and hung them on the wall.

Check out my Youtube and see how I build it.

Jack this is really nice. Simple but very effective! Nice video of the build.

Wow! This is what I call beautiful shop storage. I love it! This kind of oranization makes me very happy. Well organized shops are a joy to work in and tend to be very efficient.

Your project looks wonderful.
A couple of quick questions, please:

First, is it correct that you did use standard peg board hooks?
Which ones, or where did you get them?
I cannot seem to find any good ones that will stay in place very well.
I am not a pegboard fan, either, but it is mostly due to not finding good hooks.

And,
How did you attach the hooks to the small wooden boxes?

Appreciate those replies.

Hi Jim,
I found the hooks at home depot and made my lattice fit tight on the hooks so they would not fall out. You can also make your own hooks. The boxes had holes drilled in the back for the hooks and they were friction fit. I made a build article for the tool holder. http://www.jax-design.net/2017/02/wall-tool-holder.html
