Quick and easy ideas for mounting tools and accessories

These three quick mounting methods for your small tools and accessories free up space on your workbench

Drill Bits

To make a holder for tools that fit in round holes, glue two pieces of 3/4" scrap together. Drill stopped holes slightly larger than the bit-shank or tool diameters.

Tape Measures, Pens

A piece of 1/8 x 1-1/2" aluminum bar (available at hardware stores) and two 1/4 x 1-1/2 x 1-1/2" wood spacers make a handy holder for items that have a spring clip.


To create narrow slots, glue 1/8" spacers between strips of 1/4" stock. A notched T-shaped holder made from 1/4" stock keeps a sliding bevel securely in place.
