Picture of bench tools organizer

one of the most annoying thing in my workshop is the tools that i can't find ,even if its in front of me .I am not really an organized man but when in it comes to screwdrivers and pliers it drives me nuts to search them on my workbench ,so i decided to make this small tools organizer

Step 1: Design

The goals list:

  1. Easy and simple to build
  2. Small and compact as possible
  3. Holds the tools that i use more often
  4. Build it cheap
  • After some paper drawing i ended up with this design ,which i think is the best
  • The dimensions depends on what you got, you don't need to stick with the exact dimensions

  • If the longest screwdriver you have touch the ground and you don't have a wider wood palette you can go with the other design with a longer

  • The only thing a got in mind is wood ,and where can i get it? o yeah pallets!

  • start by the cut number 1 then in order 2,3,....., you can alter the cutting steps but this is the easiest way i think .
  • for the last 2 pieces you may need to make them from thicker wood if your screwdrivers touches the ground
