New Tool Storage

Replaced the white pegboard across the back wall of my garage shop with tongue and groove ponderosa pine siding that I picked up on clearance at the local big blue store. Made (and still have a few to make) custom tool storage for my growing collection of hand tools from scraps of walnut left over from a few large coffee table projects.

Thanks for looking,

Man, that is an organized shop. I wouldn’t be able to find anything to use :-). Well done.

Nice, I hate white peg board! What back saws are those? Did you make them?

The two saw on the left are a tenon saw and dovetail saw by Paragon. The two on the right are a rip cut dovetail and crosscut carcass saw by Lie Nielsen. I have been getting more serious about hand tools in the last year or so. I am slowly adding to my arsenal with good quality tools. In fact, I got a good deal ($52) for a Record 778 rebate plane (778 has the dual rods supporting the fence) that should arrive Monday or Tuesday. Next up is a router plane.

Thanks for your comments, Tim

good stuff, that puts my pegboard to shame.

Nice Job! I wish it would be my time to start with hanging tools on the wall…. like the way the saws hang there…. (we’re still building the shop)
