How to Build a Foldable Tool Storage System
Learn how to build and install a space-saving, wall-mounted, hinged tool storage system.
I consider myself lucky to have a somewhat spacious workshop, where I can spread out and take all the room I need. But many folks have to fit everything into a small basement or the along the wall of a garage. This was particularly true for my friend Jeff, whose workshop is down in the cellar, cramped into the corner. That's why I thought this ingenious space-saving tool storage system would be ideal for him. It provides about thirty square feet of hanging space on only eight square feet of wall. When finished, it resembles a giant book mounted vertically. The unit can be customized to hold just about anything you'd normally hang on a wall and the individual panels are easily removed and can be modified with off-the-shelf or customized tool storage fixtures. Jeff and I built a demonstration model in my shop, then he went home and reconfigured it to fit his available space and to hold his own tool collection.
