Introduction: Upcycled Wire Tool Organizer
Here's a handy tool organizer made from discarded fencing wire and a wirerack from an old fridge.
All you need is some fencing wire and a rack from an oven or a fridge.
A DIWire CNC wire-bending machine from Pensa Labs would be useful here, but failing that just use pliers like I did.
Step 1: Make Some Wire Hooks.
The hooks are made to hang from the wire rack.
To hangar a hammer we need a double hook. Other tools only require a single hook.
Using pliers bend the wire to follow the pattern in the pictures.
I have designed the hooks each be supported at two points to stop them twisting. These two support points are tight enough to grip the wire rack.
The wire "U" between the two support points has a little bend to hook over one of the rack wires in order to lock the hook in place. This is a little difficult to describe so just look at the pictures.
Step 2: Installation
The wire rack needs to be attached to a wall. I just used screws for this.
The hooks can be arranged to suit the tools you want to hang on them.
See the pictures to see how the hooks clip onto the rack.
