      Posting these cat-cartoons-without-the-cartoon was a long journey that I don’t know if I’ll repeat soon again. A daily blog is tough … even when you have your material handed to you! But, I couldn’t have done it without the artwork … Continue reading →

Tool rack for a plastic shed

Posted by joeabbott on July 16, 2016

I talked about building a tool rack for our Keeter plastic shed a short while back but just came across a couple of pics of it in use. I am fairly chuffed at how well this turned out so I’ll share the photos here.

Nothing all that fancy: 2×4 dimensional lumber and a couple of specialty hooks made specifically to grab exposed studs. At the very top we screwed in a short piece of 3/4” plywood as a top shelf. The only parts that required any sort of diligence was the sizing dimension to make sure it would fit perfectly left-to-right, and then the 45° angles on the leg supports. Then just screws!

      Thanks, man! This one was pretty easy to build but I like the idea and think it’s working great with our expanding selection of simple tools. It feels like the sorta place you’d enter and say, “I’m not sure what I’m looking for but pretty sure I’ll know it when I see it!”
