Picture of Organize the Workbench
I have been salvaging parts from sold old electronic pieces lately, but mostly I seem to be creating chaos. I added a wing to my computer desk to give me an inside work space for delicate electronic work. But I keep bringing tools in from the workshop, and I don't (yet) have it very well organized. Enter the tool holder. I am thinking a little stand that i can hold the screwdrivers and pliers that are currently hanging on the bench.

Step 1: It is working!

A little more sanding and some wipe-on poly.  The screw holes were plugged with contrasting wood plugs. This isn't cabinet quality, but I wanted it to look good. The mahogany and maple make a nice contrast, even if the sanding is a pain.  And my desk looks organized!

I am using tool pallets right now for my electronics workbench. Before that I kept a lot of tools in a cup.
