Hi, and now my wall mounted tool rack, got inspired by this one on

Used 2×4’ 1/2” plywood plus some pine wood for all the holders, a scrap 5/8” aluminum round bar for the pliers holder and lots of “L” screws, all the holders are screwed to the base from behind.

Now I can keep all my tools at hand and ready to be used!

Thanks for looking!

I like the idea of offsetting the screwdrivers and the wrenches. Perfect, neither interferes with the other.

The chisel as the highest object on the rack scares me though. ;)

Nothing like order in the work shop – well that should be using the tools also… Lol.
Looks good.

Thanks everyone for the comments!

swirt: the offset works really well, you can easily see the correct screwdriver, as for the chisel… That’s an afterthought, should get a new place later in a chisel/plane rack ;)

Jim: lol and almost right, those are metric :D, I think I have used it a couple of times already on my electronic projects

mafe: with all the tools at hand at least now I won’t be using a wrench as a hammer and a knife as a screwdriver hehee

Simple but very effective. Love it.
