Organize Your Tools


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

If you're a 'Do-it-Yourselfer' you know that keeping tools in your toolbox means looking for the right tool when you need one.
I put up a peg-board next to my work-bench and put my tools on the peg-board (hammers with hammers, screwdrivers in descending sizes, regular Phillips, hex, etc.).
I then outlined each tool then filled in the outline with black paint.
Now I can tell at a glance if a tool is missing and I track it down and put it back in it's place. I don't walk all over (cont)

trying to find tools now.
It has saved me 5-10 minutes every time I start a project and forces me to put tools back after I use them.
However, my DW still hasn't caught on.

    This is a great idea! I love that you paint the silouettes onto the board. Very creative!
