Workshop tip: Leather straps hold irregularly shaped tools
Wall-mounted panel holds all kinds of tools like pliers, wrenches, and scissors.
Wall-mounted panels are a great way to keep tools organized yet easily accessible, and making custom tool holders is fun. For odd-shaped utility tools like pliers, wrenches, and scissors, screw a leather strap to the tool board, leaving whatever slack is needed to secure the top of the tool, with a small, lipped shelf below to support the tips. The tools will be safe and secure, yet easy to pull out of their loops.
