« Part 29: Hanging a door Part 30 of Building a brace till series Part 31: Adjusting the doors and putting on the latches »

Before I hung the second door, I spent a few days outfitting it with hangers for additional tools. I wanted to put a bunch of my marking and layout tools on the outside of the door, and a couple eggbeaters on the inside. (The first door will get the balance of the eggbeaters on the inside and more marking tools on the outside, as well)

So, here’s a look.

The doors don’t quite both close at the same time, because geometry, but I should be able to fix that fairly quickly with a block plane without having to remove either door. Plus, the left one will probably have to come off at some point so I can hang tools on it. Not going to worry about that today, though.

Nice layout, will be handy to have the marking & layout within easy access.

Thanks, Tom! I’ve been trying to decide if more layout tools go on the left door (marking gauges mostly, I think), or if perhaps a few hammers need to live there, as well. As I organize stuff, I keep finding tools that have been buried almost the entire time I’ve had this shop.

Great organization Dave. I like the idea of having the layout tools on the outside within easy reach.

Thanks, Eric. A lot better than just having them laying on the bench, right?

Very true Dave. My cabinet wall is getting filled up. May have built a new one or add on.

That’s the way organization should be set up. Looks great Dave.

Thanks, Eric. Had room enough to stand on my bench this morning to fit the latches on the doors, so maybe it is possible to build my way out of this mess. ;-)

Thanks, Dave. Getting there.

And thanks, Dave. Having a bunch of spare pine boards from the bookcases gives me a chance to keep at it without trips to town for lumber and worrying about the high cost.
