Cool. Do you have a pic of the parts separate? I want to make something sort of similar. I’m not sure how to mount it to the wall.September 25, 2017 at 6:37 am #44680September 25, 2017 at 6:39 am #44685

Here is a spool shelf design I did that uses 3/4″ EMT, plastic parts & inexpensive metal shelf brackets. Works nicely and out of the way above the doorway in my room.September 25, 2017 at 4:45 pm #44726
That’s a nice shelf idea. I’ll have to try that one.September 27, 2017 at 4:29 pm #44849September 27, 2017 at 4:50 pm #44854
Thats freaking awesome Jeffeb !!!!September 27, 2017 at 5:01 pm #44862
I wanted to hang it right side up, because I always leave my tape measure and pencil on top.
I really need to clean off that bench though…
Also, that is the clearance home Depot blue pine boards I’m using for the tool wall. So far, so good. It’s taking a really long time to get things hung up though.September 27, 2017 at 5:29 pm #44865
You getting there Its important to make small steps evryday you manage QuickEr then you ThinkSeptember 28, 2017 at 4:10 am #44869
That’s the nice thing with having osb walls. Screw holes don’t really show. If I don’t like where a tool holder was mounted I can move it without having to fill holes to keep it looking nice.
Also, I use these screws to mount stuff to the walls. They’re pan head, so no countersinking needed. They make them for wood and metal self tappers. I think they look better than sheetrock screws too.September 28, 2017 at 8:08 am #44872
I have those exact sames screws, then my buddy came by and told me about the GRK brand he uses on decks. I am in love, so many sizes and head types (flush, hidden, washer), the part I really like is most of them have the smooth part to keep things tight as heck.September 28, 2017 at 7:47 pm #44926
I used those GRK when remounting the rafter brackets (not sure if that’s the right name) on my house last year. The brackets use 4×6 lumber (1920 vintage, so full 4″x6″) so I needed something that could go through 4″, then two layers of cedar and another of ship-lap, then into a 4×4 frame member. They made them big enough and with a torx head so I could drive them with a battery powered screwdriver (did I say these were for the dormer roofs on the second story? Didn’t want to have a cord pulling down).
