Is your workbench pegboard getting overcrowded with tools?  Or perhaps the printed sizes on your hand tools seem to be getting a little smaller and blurrier every year?  Perhaps this nut driver holder will help with both of those issues.  The same basic design can be applied to other similar tools such as screwdrivers.

I made this at TechShop   www.techshop.ws

Step 1: Materials & Equipment

Vector drawing software (I used CorelDraw)
Laser Cutter (my TechShop has a Trotec Speedy 300)
1/2" thick 3-1/2" x 12" poplar board
1/4" thick 2" x 6" poplar board
1-1/2" x 12" walnut veneer
150 grit sandpaper
Spray acrylic

This instructable assumes some basic familiarity with CorelDraw and a laser cutter.

Mine aren't as pretty, but they get the job done!
<p>This is beautifully done! The detail is fantastic....your workshop must be amazing!</p>
<p>I love it, great work! Nice set of nut drivers - I have a similar set but they are 45 years old and look it.</p><p>The engraved nut sizes are a good touch. I always have to ask myself: &quot;Is the green one bigger than the blue one, or...&quot;.</p>
<p>That's pretty dang nifty. Better than tossed into the drawer of no return.</p>
<p>Nice job! I like that you even etched the sides!</p>
