I hatched this one in just over an hour. Very simple. Everything was done on the drill press except the two discs which were done on the band saw. I didn’t measure out the hole spacing but I did use a pin to keep the center.

The height is adjustable. You may notice, the pictures without the tools are in the center location. They other three with the tools are in the lower position. This is done by pulling out the dowel pin and placing it in the appropriate hole. The only reason I did this is because I didn’t know how low to go. I figured I’d cut the dowel long and if it got in my way I’d cut it back. Turns out I feels perfect at the lowest position.

These pictures capture another cool organizer I made out of a 2X4. It’s off to the left. I cut an 8 foot 2×4 into two, 4 foot lengths and glued them together after cutting a matching rabbit in both. Then I cut a series of 3/4” rabbets on an angle. Hung it on the wall and done. Scrap pieces of wood make great shelves and most of my jigs and inserts are 3/4” so they store neatly.
