Just goofing around over the last week or so with wood I had. I built this tool Wall Hanger, this Router Table (not completed) and the adjustable Tool Bin.
I needed to organize a little more and this stuff did the trick.
It’s nothing fancy but it helps keep stuff in one place and easy to get at.
My expensive hand tools will go in a nice cabinet.
I have to build some simple shop carts for my bench model band saw, drill press, miter saw and sanding machine, but if I don’t get at some of that “honey-do” list first, theres gonna be trouble…LOL.
Thanks for looking.

That looks like a real useful project. I should do something like this myself. Do you plan to enclose the router cabinet in the front? Maybe an acrylic door?

Great looking job. A nice cozy place to store all of the useful tools.

Great work. Well organised tools cabinet.
.....”My expensive hand tools will go in a nice cabinet”, I have to agree with you. And to certain extent do not even expose them to dusts…that’s how I take care of my hand tools. I seldom clean my TS, CS, DP in between use. But my hand tools must be clean before they go to rest…LOL. Why?

It looks pretty well organized. It’s fun to work in a well organized shop, which I don’t have.

Wow! I hope my shop stays this organized when it’s done! Like Steve said, I wish I was better at organizing. I like the pidgeon hole set-up that you have next to your router table. I have something similar that I use to cubby-hole my cordless tools & put a charging station on top. That’s also a beautiful job on laying out the tool board on the wall. Nice!

Everythings so organized, don’t get any ideas from my shop pictures!! I usually do a once a month gut out of everything and put on some good tunes like Pink Floyd and just clean like a mad hatter!! I like seeing your hand planes up off the bench surface, just irkes me to see a plane with the iron resting on the bench!! A masterwoodworker from UK corrected me along time ago on that!!

Like everyone else says…...nice layout. Where’d you get magnetic strip near the top?? I’ve got a homemade strip that I use to hold my chisels…works great.(salvaged magnet bars)
