So it seems Live Edge is a current tend. I am personally not much into trends, but I found these gnarly live edge 2×4s on a recent trip tot he big orange store and thought why not, I need a new shop shelf at the lathe. So here it is my version of a live edge shelf. This one as you can see is for my lathe accessories, most of which were on the racks but a few were too small and took up space on my tool cart. Pic 2 shows the original set up with a couple of standard pegboard screwdriver racks. The shelf is mounted using L hooks that hang on the pegboard. I know french cleats are pretty popular these days but I have no issues with the pegboard and using these hooks on occasion to make new tool holders. I honestly want to make some new ones soon, but best laid plans…

Thanks all for looking. Hope you all get some time in the shop.

A combination of pegboard and shelves will organize anything. Looks good and it works.
