I needed to organize and get back some bench space. I wanted to build a tool cabinet, but I don’t have the space for a proper one. This board can become part of a cabinet for tools in the future. Mean while I won’t be searching for things all the time! All from scraps, I used dowels to hang stuff. Thought It looked better than screws. I have room for a few new things. I will add a second board to the left of this one. 32” x 24”

It looks to be working out just fine Pete. Good thinking.

Order is good. Chaos is bad.

Room for new stuff is always a good thing (one always needs more box cutters)! Nice work with the small storage trays and maximizing the use of the wall space, some day I’ll try the same as soon as I find my box cutter, I have 4 or 5 around somewhere 8^)

Inspirational Pete!

You want inspiration ? Google the Sudley tool cabinet. Wow is that awesome. I plan to build a version when I get more wall space. Norm had the Sudley cabinet on the New Yankee work shop, you tube that.

That’s not inspiration, that is punishment for keeping all my tools at hands reach for when I need them 8^)

Maybe when I run out of stuff to do for the next several years!
