How to Make a Woodworking Hand Tool Storage Board

//How to Make a Woodworking Hand Tool Storage Board

In my above video I show the woodworking “hand tool storage board” & shelf that I just designed and built to store & display some of my most used hand tools, including my chisels, marking gauges, back saws, try squares, dividers, and molding planes.


In addition to using scrap to build this simple storage board (which hangs on wall studs) I built a shelf for my molding planes using simple 2×10 pine boards. The molding plane shelf is held together with dado joints and screws. It’s not beautiful, but it’s sturdy and helps me get organized.

Both projects took me just a couple hours and certainly helped me to clean up my shop!
