Build your tool holders so they work well hanging on a wall or standing on a bench. Add a French cleat to the back of the holder—the cleat's 45° beveled edge will hold tight to a matching wall cleat while allowing you to lift the holder off. For bench use, add a base, like that shown above, or a pair of legs. Angle the top of the bit holder 15° for easier access to its contents. Likewise, angle one face of the magnetic chisel holder strip 10°.
