Worktable Wall Mount

Introduction: Worktable Wall Mount

Hey guys! This is a quick instructable on how to make a workshop wall mount for all your tools, plans etc etc etc. I've used a 9mm sheet of 4'x3' marine plywood for this.

Step 1: Mounting the Ply

To put the ply on the wall, you gotta first keep it up there to put the screws... For that I rested it on a block slightly above the worktable.

Step 2: The Screws

I first drilled a deep hole into the wall through the wood, then stuffed it with toothpicks for the screws to grip and then sent the screws in with a drill.
Do this to the top 2 corners, and slightly below the centre., and one in the centre to keep the board from warping in the centre

Step 3: The Mounts

Here I've put screws to mount all my tools. For the hot glue gun and dremel, I just put 2 screws about 6" apart. I also put a shelf which I purchased on...

Step 4: Rc Remote Hangar

This is a simple step. I just plugged 2 screws in to hang my rc remote onto...

Step 5: Drill Mount

Now for the drill mount! For this I'm using glass brackets which I picked up from my local hardware store for around 100 rupees a pair (around 2$)
I put a wooden stick into it to extend it further, and screwed it to the wall.

Step 6: Miscellaneous Hanging Screws

This is for hanging random stuff, small wires etc... Simply measure out a 2" gap horizontally and drill in some screws

Step 7: Finish

And you're done! You can basically mount anything on this as long as it isn't too heavy ( no hanging anvils or people)

Step 8: [EDIT] Tablet Mount

Now I'm gonna jab on a mount for my nexus so I can keep stuff on display while working (or watch a movie ;))
For this I'm using an old case for the tab... I'm using a case with a rotating cap so I can spin the tab while it's mounted...
First I peeled off the coating from the back cover, as it was old and rotting...
Spray painted it cuz swag...
Then I epoxied a piece of wood onto the spin mechanism in the centre...
Screwed the wood into the board.. Aaand done!

    I'm curious about that cool looking rc plane. Is that scratch built or from a kit?
