This is my my one hundred and first project on LJ’s .
The tool till you see is a start of getting my workshop organized and get everything in a place where I can find it at a glance.
The till is build from Baltic birch ply left over and given to me by a buddy,two timing belts from a car repair shop and laminate flooring pallet top sheets ,so more or less all recycled material.
This will house all my hand and measuring tools besides sanding supplies and a new power bar ETC .
The dividers are a press fit and can easily be moved as requirements change and all tools get a snug fit in a single compartment to keep the chisel and the likes from touching each other and causing damage .
Got some ways to go but this is a good start and a vast improvement from that old plastic rack .
The clamp rack also seems to work well and one feature is a large hole at the end of the slot which allows me to slightly turn the clamps and make the more secure if they should get bumped and keep them from falling .

Using the timing belt as a spacer is an excellent idea.
Thanks for sharing.

That’s ingenious. A rear belt off of a newer Harley Davidson looks very similar to that. Really kool idea

Our car needs a new timing belt. Think I’ll ask the mechanic to save the old one for me !

A very unique idea and a project I’m sure will be duplicated more than once. Great job.

Kiefer would you come over and organize my shop please. Your are a wizard when it comes to bringing together elements that rarely share the same room. I think you need to run for political office. I would definitely vote for you!

It’s not just a really nice project….it’s the satisfied smile you get when you go in the shop, because NOW, you can find everything…every time.
Good Job.
