Introduction: Tools_Wall_Mount

About: Hey! My name is Roey Leon, from Tel Aviv, Israel. On my free time, as a hobby of mine, I love building stuff from scratch. It always starts with a crazy idea, and then I realize that it`s too Dangerous / Una...

Hey all

Since i moved from my parents house to a house of my own , i wanted to create myself a convenient area to work on my projects.

So , i got my self a spare room , turned it into a work room including a PC , 2 screens, stereo speakers , and of course a Tools Stand with a table.

I hope you enjoy this project , i know i did ;)

Step 1: Locate the Place

Find you place you want to place the table and the tools

i found my self a nice niche between a wall and a closet.

Got my self a nice 5 cm wood table , mounted it with dark legs and placed it inside

Step 2: Start With the Attaching the Panels to the Walls

i went to a Woodshed to buy my self a nice pine plate ( each 1.2cm thick )

i installed it on the walls with a spacer between the plates and the wall ( the spacer thickness is about 1.5 cm ) - That way you can drill screws to the plate without having to worry about damaging the internal wall.

Step 3: Bracket Frame for LED

You must have an LED light for the tools stand to be awesome !

So i created a small bracket for the LED . You need to saw 3 pieces of pine wood logs , and attached them to the frame with screws

Step 4: Start Mounting the Tools #1

I started mounting the tools on the board using screws.

Started drilling each screw gently so i would not crack the board.

Step 5: Start Mounting the Tools #2

Continue

Step 6: Create a Power Outlet Strip

I did not had any power outlet near by , so i had to run a 10m cable ...

\

Drilled the table at it`s end , and ran the cable threw it

Step 7: Attache the Table to the Wall

I had to attache the table to the wall in order for it to be steady.

Since i would work on it a lot , and i would drill , saw , and use a hammer , the table must stay still

Step 8: Beer Brake

Must have a cold one

:)

Step 9: Add an IPad

You must have an iPad

And if you already have one , use it to watch instructional videos, YouTube music , and of course the Instructables site

:)

Step 10: Create Some Unique Sign

I wanted the area to be neat coo; ,so i bought a sofa from Ikea ,and a few extra shelves

Moreover i connected my working station + 2 screens. and all came out perfect

I decided to print a bunch of letters with a the next Quote " Design Create Inspire " , you need to cut each letter separately , and glue them on the wall ( it took forever ! )

The result is great !

Step 11: All Done!

Let me know what you think of

It was hard work , and took a few days of mounting and designing the whole concept

But i`m very happy with the result , finally i have a room @ my home , which i can express my thoughts and enjoy building them

Hope you enjoy this instructable , cause i know i did

:)

By far the best step was the beer break!!!! But only one? Looks amazing hard to believe all that work and one beer. ??

wow! your work is very clean. If you were in ((LIVING WITHOUT CLOSETS CONTEST)), you were one of the nominees.

Good for hubbys birthday present

I'm particularly interested in the small-parts storage, rather in their shelves. Did you make those, or buy them? I have lots of small parts, tools and art--craft; I also have plenty of storage boxes but can't find how to make the units to house them. If you made them, can you do a how-to, please? and if you bought them, where? Thanks.

thanks, dear! the third link is closest to what I was looking for - actually, I already have plenty of small boxes etc, just nothing to put 'em on - I've tried the "make storage shelves out of cardboard" but it never works for me. But that thjrd link will do nicely, thanks again

Hello, this is the link to the catalog of this small-parts storage

Those little cabinets with the parts drawers should be readily available locally if you live in the US. The cabinets are usually either plastic or sheet metal. The drawers are most often styrene plastic. It is clear, but has a short lifespan and breaks easily. They are normally available from building supply centers like Lowe's or Home Depot or Harbor Freight. Often they can be found at garage sales. They are not terribly expensive, depending on the size/number of drawers you need.
