Easy Tool Organization
Want a great toolboard over your work bench? Do this: cut a piece of cardboard out of a bike box (or ?) the size of your tool board (3/4-inch plywood screwed to the wall works nicely).
Lay the cardboard down on the bench or floor and lay all your tools out on it the way youd like them to hang. Put frequently used tools near the center, and dont put tools too high or youll have trouble reaching them when theyre hanging on your tool board.
Next, draw a quick outline around the tool and mark where a nail would support the tool. Remove the tools, rest the cardboard against your tool board, drive nails through the marks you made, remove the cardboard template and hang your tools on the nails (use the outlines on the template as your guide).
should now be organized exactly the way you planned. Try the arrangement
and if you like it, use a Sharpie marker to outline the tools and youll
have completed your custom toolboard.
