In most workshops space is limited. So you need to find a way to utilize every bit of space that you can. One area that is often overlooked is the space underneath shelves and cabinets. But this can be a great place to store small tools. All you need is a magnetic strip that is mounted to the bottom of the shelf or cabinet.
In this project, I am going to show you how to make simple magnetic plates that you can use to mount small hand tools.
Step 1: Materials
Thin Steel Sheet Metal
Small Wood Screws
Needle Nose Pliers
Drill and Bit Set
Hammer and Nails (optional)
Step 2: Select a Magnet
Step 3: Cut Out a Piece of the Sheet Metal for the Frame
You can purchase steel sheet metal at most hardware stores. Alternatively, you can just cut up scrap metal that you have lying around.
