I’m running out of space in my shop, and it started to feel disorganized. Couple that with the fact that I am absent-minded when it comes to where I set down the last tool I had in my hand.
So I built this tool organizer that hangs from the ceiling.

The price of plywood is nuts right now so I built it out of knotty alder which was a bit cheaper, and accented it with walnut. I know, I know, walnut for shop furniture Really? But I spend most of my time in my shop and I want it to be an inviting place to hang out.

Here is a video of the build if you are interested.


Thanks For Watching

Brian,

Nice organizer. Great having all the tools together with a place to put them back. Couldn’t do the video, tried but we are currently in an RV park and using my phone for a hot spot. Waayy slow.

Slick storage concept Brian. Human nature says you will use a tool, jig, or whatever if you know where it is, and can get to it easily. So this is an efficiency machine, and a safety tool rolled into a spot you normally wouldn’t use in the shop.

Nice build vid too.

My bet is you will be copied many a time, especially by those like you using a shared shop space. I know I’m swiping the miter gauge, and gauge block part of this. My problem is with 12’ ceilings I’ll find another place to put it, and I already know where.

Pretty slick idea and sweet set up. Being organized is a positive thing because who likes searching for tools instead of working on the project?

I have vaulted ceilings, so it was a bit of a struggle to get it mounted. Lol. I’m sure wherever you put it will work out awesome
