DIY tool holders made of wood

Maybe like me you would like to have all your tools hanging on the wall. Sometimes I am tempted to buy one of those little plastic or metal kits to hang them on, but luckily I don’t buy them, as they will surely end up broken, lying in a corner or worse, disfiguring one of the walls of the workshop.

One option could be to use that curious perforated plate, the pegboard, although you may not like the way it looks on the wall with the irons that are usually used to hang tools. But I have to say that I love the way it looks when it is used as a veneer on the sides or on the door of a piece of workshop furniture.

The simplest alternative is to screw a board to the wall and hammer in a few nails to support the tools. Nothing too pretty. Of course, if you feel like it, you can make custom wooden holders for each tool.

If you are looking for a way to store woodworking and do-it-yourself power tools, I prefer a cabinet with doors where they can be stored.

In this Woodgears article you have a lot of ideas to do. And notice that it does not draw the profile of the tools on the board to remember where they were. We are sure that if we manage to have everything in order (that’s what it’s all about) most of them will be in their place and we won’t have many free spaces when it’s time to store the ones we are using. Although now that I realize… with the custom brackets each tool will probably only fit in one place.

You have the link to this article in English about Woodgears hand tool holders in the woodworking projects tab of this blog and there go to woodgears translations (number 25).
