I’m between bigger projects so I’ve been doing some shop organizing. I wanted a better solution for storing my sleds then laying them on my dust collector or sitting on the floor and had some unused wall space.

I used scraps to make a fixed rack on one side and then a door hinge on the other side to swing the rack out of the way to take the sled down. A bungee cord makes sure the hinges side doesn’t open inadvertently.

I thought about just doing dowels or some type of hooks but didn’t want to put extra holes in the sleds to hang them.

LOL! For me it was 1996. I have dismantled every big sled I’ve ever made for the Baltic plywood I made it from cuz I never have anywhere to put them.

Yeah, I guess I’m still relatively green. The mid 90s were my middle school years.

Haven’t quite been in this shop for 3 years yet. That spot was previously occupied by longer random off cuts I was never going to use.

I’ve still got a few spaces on the wall to fill. What are your top wall mounted accessories?

I really like the simplicity of your hanging racks. Now if I could only find the wall space.

Don’t panic Arm3 around 2025 you’ll discover and have the pleasure of reliving our (pottzy, Abb, BB and me) mid 90’s… ”Enjoy” when it arrives. Be interesting to see it the rack survives…

Nevertheless, nice job and congratz on such a golden “luxury”... you… you… you capitalist!

most of my wall space is cabinets,i dont like open shelving and hanging tools on the wall takes up way too much space for me.some of the walls are clamp racks,cant have too many of those you know.i have 10’ ceilings so i store wood on racks above the upper cabinets.look at my shop pic’s and you will get an idea.
