Used to have a bare wall above the tool bench, but got tired of digging through stuff to find WHAT tool i needed. Soooo, A few long drywall screws to the rescue!

Then, I could never find the right sized chisel, so a piece of scrap to the rescue:

Just drilled a few holes, and then sawed a few slots to connect the holes. A couple more long drywall screws to fasten it to the wall. I also didn’t let an unused area go to waste. I found a place to store some finger clamps as well.

I hang as much on the wall as possible. It is much easier to find what you need. You can also see what you forgot to put back up. You’ll never notice a missing wrench, if they are just thrown in a drawer, until you need it. By then, you can’t remember where you used it last. I have C.R.S. anyway, I waste enough time trying to find my phone and keys, I don’t have time to hunt for tools, too.

-- I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you. I'm sorry,thanks.
