My workshop never has enough space. I accumulate tools faster than I can organize them. Unlike Tim the Toolman, I am not a big fan of pegboard. I prefer to make custom tool holders out of scrap wood. A mahogany hammer bracket is just plain elegant. I was recently given a beautiful caliper, and I bought a digital angle finder.  But they kept sitting on a shelf where tey could be damaged, so time for a holder. Here is the process.

Step 1: Other examples

I usually leave the screws exposed when I attach the holders to the wall. I have been known to move them later. Here are some more examples. Please excuse the layer of sawdust on top of some of the tools.
