« Part 25: ShopQuest 2014- I found my Workbench! Part 26 of Workshop series Part 27: Table Saw Saw Mill »

For quite awhile now this is how my pliers have been stored above my workbench…

Since I was puttering around the shop today with yet another snow day. I finally took a few minutes to make a rack. I used some games that did not turn out for one reason or another as sides and a piece of scrap 2×4 that was once a shelf in my shop.

Nothing very exciting I know… however as I continue to think about it I think this space is going to become a bigger area for a future ShopQuest. I am pushing around a multilayer tool cabinet in order to better organize the tools.

I have a number of ideas floating around from fellow LJ’s and just around the web in general. For now though this should be a lot easier to deal with than those little hooks. Thanks for looking.

Looks good. I need to get some white peg board or paint it to replace the dull stuff I have.

Thanks Guys.
Considering how long it took me to assemble this, I really should have done it a long time ago. Oh well.

Dave-The white does seem to help and brighten the place up a bit.
