Glue Tool Holder Thing

I picked up this silicone pad and some glue tools from Rockler a few months back and they have been such an amazing addition to my glueup workflow. Since getting them I’ve used them on every project I’ve made and don’t see myself ever not using them so I wanted to make a little caddy type thing to keep them all together and easy to move around since I was sick of them being scattered around the workbench. I had a few pieces of scrap plywood and a bunch of thin (about 1/8th inch thick or so) walnut scraps laying around so I got it all cut out, then I veneered on the walnut to hide the plywood, and gave it a good filing/sanding to get it looking nice. I used Odies Oil as a finish and a buff with a cotton cloth. I’m really pleased with how it turned out, I will be adding little dividers to keep the tools upright and potentially a matching glue caddy to carry my actual glues too. Any comments or questions are much appreciated. Thanks for looking!

Handy to have!

I also like the Rockler tools, the black spreader is very handy for keeping the pace up while gluing cutting boards 8^)

So handy, I’m glad I can keep them all together now – seems I use a few on each project. Thanks for the comment!

I totally agree, much less frustration when you don’t have to search around for every tool lol. Thanks for the comment!

I’m actually surprised there isn’t readymade solutions for it, I’ve had a few ideas to refine the design a bit – maybe I’ll hit on something sellable lol. Thanks for the comment!
