I am terrible at putting down my tapes and pencils and not being able to find them again, so I decided to make a little, wall mounted, holder for all my common measuring and marking bits and bobs. The squares all stay in place through gravity alone but I popped a small magnet behind the tape to pick up the clip and hold it in place. The folding ruler at the bottom has a little lip to keep in in place. I might put a small block under the Sharpies to push them up and make them look a little neater. I probably spent about a couple of hours knocking it up. It is finished with Danish oil and hard wax.

I have the same problem. I am designing a tool cabinet for my new garage and plan on putting in a removable marking/layout holder like this to set on the bench while I working.
