Hello everyone,

I don’t know about you, but, when I need to solve a problem I look for a simple practical solution. The problem: how to store my chisels so they would be easily accessible. The solution: a small tray and a couple of drywall screws.

I attached the tray to the wall.

And then simply slid my chisels into the slots of the tray.

It was that simple! I could have made a proper chisel rack and I still might but like I say in the video I’m a little more lazy than that. It doesn’t look pretty but it does work (for the moment)

Maybe this solution will be of some help to you. Thanks for reading and take care.

Less is a lot more!
Lovely idea.
Even a wee humoristic, dear Doug.

I agree. The dollar store has a lot of stuff to sort and hang stuff. And interestingly it’s all on sale for a dollar!

BigMig – You’re absolutely right. I had to get those chisels hung so I could get back to my nap.

Craftsman – We don’t often think of the dollar store when looking for a solution but sometimes it’s just the ticket.

Thank you both for reading.
