Upcoming Project – Slat Wall Storage

I have a nice slat wall that was given to me by my neighbor a few years ago.  It was used in a retail space and is really nice.  The problem is the hardware that I have is for a pegboard and when you take a tool off the board the pegs fall off and go everywhere.  So to fix this I will make some storage solutions that work with this wall and that keep the holders mounted firmly.  I think I will start by looking into options for my wood clamps and C-Clamps.  I also need to make some storage for some wrenches, my cordless drill, and other various tools that I find myself grabbing for when I am working on a project.  I am going to spend the next couple of days thinking of what tools would best be on the board and which will be better tucked away in a drawer.


The main items I know right now I want to keep on the wall are:

  • Hammers
  • Screwdrivers
  • Squares
  • Clamps
  • Tape Measures
  • Tape
  • Saws


I know there will be more and hopefully once I start to make a home for everything I will start to get more room.  Right now everything sort of looks like a scattered mess.
