This is a tool holder that is located above my table saw it is used to hold the tools I need most at the saw. It holds my Ridgid digital miter guage, small square, pencil holder, 45 degree tool to make measurement marks on two sides of the board, tape measure, wrenches to take the blade off and on, remote controls for my vacuum, a/c and air filtration system and lastly my iPhone sound amplifier.

This holder hangs from the ceiling and the main body was put on a slight tilt to help hold the tools. There is a magnet behind the square and the miter guage bar. The tape measure is attached using its spring clip and a metal plate used for protecting plumbing that runs thru studs from drywall screws. The pencil holder is a piece of 1/2” pex tubing. It is held in place by the cup hooks turned to put the tubing on a bind.

This was made from scraps of mdf, poplar and 3/4” plywood that I had salvage from a sheet of 4’x8’ that had fallen off my truck on interstate 45 on the way home from the lumber store. Don’t ask…......

If I had a do over I would add more bracing to keep it from moving around as I take tools off it and I would not use the 1/2” mdf, instead I would just dado the appropriate depth groove so the guage bar sets flush. But it will do for now, I have to get back to making cabinets for the utility room/sewing room.

Hey Stevo, as usual always making jigs to make my life easier. I saw something similar a while back, but couldn’t find it. So I just built this on the fly..
