Chip clips take less than 10 min to make from small scrap. These scraps Oak, Walnut, Mesquite. Floor sweep for shop-vac. Towel holder because roll was always on the floor. Large cookies and rack before Bench Dog’s Christmas gift. Shop-Vac tool storage idea. No wall space to hang it. I can’t fix stupid.

The small necessity items are always more appreciated and used than the fine projects we use these item to construct.

Every time that I buy a set of chip-clips from the store, they vanish or are broken within a couple of weeks. NOW I can make them out of wood and NEVER have a lack-of-chip-clip-problem again!!!
Nice projects, thanks for posting!

Great ideas! I might have to take that paper towel holder idea. Glad to see someone else make some chip clips!
