Now that is inspirational. I wish I had a little more OCD so I could find my tools under all the s* on my workbench. Thank you for leading me on the road to a clean, safe shop…hope you don’t mind me stealing your idea.

Thanks for sharing, been thinking about doing something like that for a while now. Did you cover a post? If so, how did you secure the cover?

don, its a fake non- structural column made of 1×8 so i could run wires to the middle of the shop, its secured to 2x stock cut to the inside size of the column, hilti bolted to the floor then the column screwed to the 2x stock and to a truss up top.

ooohhhra Bill thanks for your service i like the idea and the cabinet but would have liked to have it with doors to keep the pesky little hands off the prize tools and to keep the dust to a minimum I do like the idea and will modify it for my own needs I give it 4 of 5 stars because its needed doors IMHO nice work

dude… i thought about doors, but do to the close proximty to my bench i choose not to put them on( aka i cant afford to loose any more brain cells hiyting my head on them!!!!) and im lucky i have no one else besides my self in the shop besides every once in a while a helper from work and they know better
I also added a new pic with chisels in the tool box

I like the hanging tool box and tool racks you have set up. You are lucky to have the option to keep the doors off your hanging tool box…Rust would eat my hand tools alive. I am glad to see you filled it with some nice Made in Maine tools as well, good choice!
What do you think of the new Stanley chisels? I have been eyeballing them for some time.

Very creative! I too have a time keeping tools organized in one place instead of scattered to the four winds. Your shop gives me some ideas. May I suggest a bit more light with your photos?
