AW Extra 4/11/13 – At-Hand Tool Storage

At-Hand Tool Storage

By Bob Ungar

I hate fumbling around in drawers or digging into cabinets for tools.That’s why I love perf-board. It displays my hand tools out in the open where I can grab them the instant I need them. But, rather than having one big piece of perf-board in one location, I cut the stuff up and hang it wherever I need it. On my workbench, for example, I found the perfect spot to hang some perf-board for my bench tools between the legs on the face-vice end. Now my bench tools are within easy reach and right where I’m most likely to use ’em.
