No more hunting around for lost tools! I was very happy to get this thing built and mounted! 4X4 5/8 Plywood. Put a 3/4 inch stand-off on the back for screw and anchor spacing. Counter sunk the Crete screws into the block.
Makes the shop feel better and much more organized!!

Happy Cutting All!

Good organization of the tools will save you time. Congratulations on projects executed from you.

Looks good to me. I just used one of them there electrified orange trimming machines yesterday. I HATE it when I have to use it but man it sure beats hand-shears!

Like that “Thor” mallet too !

Uh, it’s right there in the middle. At least two of them, it looks like. Good job. Now get to making a mess again! On a more serious note, how can the THOR mallet NOT have its own entry in your projects gallery?

It looks good. I’m just about finished cleaning my shop up and reorganizing it. Then the next project will come up and there I’ll be looking all around to find stuff again as they get scattered about.

Looking for the stuff is half the fun of building a project!

Hey guys, thank you all for the comments! Its always a pleasure to hear from other wood-workers here on LJ’s! I’ve been away for a while but I should be around quite a bit this summer. I’ll be poking around looking at everyone’s projects. I feel very lucky to be a part of this community and enjoy it so very much.

Happy Cutting :)

Yea, it is always a nice feeling to give the old workshop a face lift ! It’s also nice to see that Super-hero’s enjoy woodworking as well ( Your Identity is safe with Me) ! LOL
