Project Information

I made this tool rack to keep most of my hand tools organized and close to my bench. The maple slats are about 2" wide by 3/4" thick with 3/4" space between them. The tool holders simply friction fit between the slats, and I used my shoulder plane to fine tune the fit. Also, in a fit of OCD, all the square head mounting screws were clocked.

I have seen these racks in retail stores of various sorts but I've never seen one in a shop. Come to think about it, however, it could be a real nice way to go. It's very attractive and versatile. Congratulations and nice work.

Nice! I really like the holder for the pliers…they are always a pain to store/hang.

Those fits of OCD are tough to resist. Very nice tool rack, the friction fit design is clever.

Great looking rack-did you cut dados in the bottom of each tool holder so it would fit over the lower slat or is it simply a block of wood that slides between the upper and lower slag and is " squeezed " in place by them?
