Bamboo Tool Shelf
This was a tool shelf I built with a drawer to put my main hand tools close within reach. The main reason I built it was to stop misplacing tools in the middle of working on a project between processes and tools. It really helped…use the square…hang the square on the pegs…etc…etc. I kept chisels and nail pullers and other tools in the drawer. I installed a mix of hardware before finally learning the wooden round pulls actually worked most effectively. I will now install the shelf in another place in my garage for tool storage in the future.
The only problem basically that happened with the tool shelf and drawer was I ran out of room for needed tools My tools also constantly stayed covered in dust due to power tool use (and I did not add doors). This would lead to me building the Heirloom Tool Chest which is another project I recently posted. It was a great shelf though to place many main tools on for easy access.
Now I will use the tool chest and take the main hand tools out during work time and place them in the new till I recently built to be stored on the back of the workbench in some particular fashion…such as the one featured on the French workbench and other variations. Check it out on my projects page.
