Okay Here are some quick and dirty shop projects I banged out in an hour yesterday. Not the fine furniture, but sometimes I have the most fun coming up with improvements for my shop. Cheap too! made from left over poplar from the scrap pile. Three different plane sizes Jack, smooth, and block, all have recesses cut in the bottom of the rack to allow clearance of the blades. and the chisel rack keeps them out of the drawer, sharp, and wear I need them.

Very nicely built! Now you just need to fill that wall up. We used this system throughout the workshop and it’s quite handy. You can make custom holders and move them around to fit the situations at hand. Sure beats the pegboard system, but we still have some PB still being used.

Nicely done! I’d love to see how you made the back of the holders and how they fit into the slat wall.

Cory, On the backs I simply drilled pilot holes and ran #8 washer head screws in the head prevent them from falling out, but you do have to start them on the side of the slat wall and slide them over to where you want, as the heads are too big to come out of the tracks.
