Constructing the organizer
1 of 2
Use plywood to make the tote, with small strips for dividers.
2 of 2
Fasten magnetic bars to the handle to keep wrenches in order.
Here's a gripping, portable
organizer for all those
wrenches and sockets.
To make your own, cut
a 5-in. handle slot in a piece
of 14-in. x 11-1/2-in. x 3/4-
in. plywood and screw it to
the middle of a piece of 14-in.
x 8-in. x 3/4-in. plywood. Band
the bottom with strips of 1-1/4-in. x
1/2-in. plywood to reinforce the tote
and keep the sockets and accessories
onboard. For wrench storage, fasten
13-in.-long magnetic tool bars (available online) halfway
up on both sides of the handle board.
Tack or glue divider strips to the floor as
needed for better socket sectoring. That's
it—load and tote!
