Flexible tool storage in the home workshop

The appearance in the home workshop of a new equipment is always associated with the search for its location. In order not to permanently alter shelves or cabinets with your own hands, arrange storage of the tool according to a “flexible” system that allows you to change the location of ready-made modules and easily add other blocks.

Start with slats with bevels

The main elements of this universal system are horizontal slats:
  • Support, having a 45 ° slant on the top edge and fixed to the wall.
  • Suspended with a bevel on the bottom, fixed on a removable panel or cabinet.

Plan the layout of the wall strips based on your needs.You can arrange several levels of storage tools from floor to ceiling or use space above the workbench, installing two or three support bars. After determining the total length of the rails, prepare a level sawn timber section of 30x150 mm. Fix the boards on the workbench and set the circular saw blade at an angle of 45 °.

Adjust the longitudinal focus on the size of 60 mm to get different slats. Wider support strips will go to the walls, as they must withstand a greater load. For the suspensions of individual components, there are enough boards already.
