Under Bench Tool Boards

A few months back, my daughter sent me a picture of a project she saw on pintrest or facebook. When I saw it, I thought that sure would work well in my shop. Kept finding other projects to do but got up this morning and it was raining and decided today was the day. Quick trip to the big box store and I was ready for some rainy day shop time. Pretty simple build, peg board cut to fit under the bench with enough extra to cut out a handle. Used pine 1×2 strips to make the guides. I spaced mine with 8” inches between the boards so that I can hang tools and what not on both sides. Total cost about 35 bucks… and have quite a bit of peg board left over for another project down the road.

Cool idea. I know there’s usually a lot of wasted space under workbenches and such. Good use of it there Bud.

I would have thought the “MAGIC HAMMER” would have had it’s own place

Hey Buster, pretty soon you will have compacted enough tools and clamps so that you will have enough space to buy some more LOL. Great idea by the way!!

Real nice, Buster. Nothing like shop organization so you can easily find the tools for the next project.
