Introduction: Sweet File and Screwdriver Holder for Peg Board.

Find some scraps of ply wood and cut them down to about 2 in strips. Using any sort of spacer, including thin ply wood or warshers, sandwich the to strips together with some spacing in between. Screw or nail the layers together and hang it on you wall or peg board.

Your holder is simple enough. I've found in most instances I don't like having to slip tools down into holes, or slots, or what have you. I prefer holding tools in open notches when I can.

For holding files I've an article up on this site from my previous account:

It holds files well too.

For screwdrivers I've cobbled this together from scraps:

Some aspects of its construction are not immediately obvious but I'm sure someone with some craft can figure them out for themselves. It is always a pleasure to pluck a driver from that rack, and just as pleasing when I return it too. I dare say I enjoy it more than my tool chest's screwdriver drawer even.

Maybe I should rebuild the top to hold even more drivers and write it up someday?

I like all the items you have pictured, great alternative to the store bought option.

For me that type of wrench organization just doesn't "stick" though...still wind up scattered for some reason. (I have a plastic version that came with one set...) Guess my brain just doesn't jive with it :/

Nice addition to this instructable!

I like it, simple and effective!

I'm (re)organizing my shop this evening and was browsing the site to see if I could glean any ideas I hadn't thought of...this was one...thanks for sharing!

Great method for max storage in min time in my opinion.
