Extension Holder...


Sunday, September 13th, 2009

 

I have two tool chests in my shop, an old 3-tier Craftsman and a large 2-tier Husky, and both are chock full of tools. The Craftsman chests is used for woodworking tools and accessories and infrequently used miscellaneous items and the larger Husky chests store all my mechanics tools. 

 

This weekend I finally made a very simple yet effective holder for all my socket set extensions. They vary in length and the longer ones tend to clutter the drawers so hanging them on the outside was a much better solution. The construction couldn't be easier.  I used some scrap Baltic Birch plywood to form the pieces which are held together with glue and screws. The lower Husky toolbox had 4 pre-existing threaded inserts so I used those for anchoring the holder.   

 

This was a fun project that was long overdue as I have been wanting one for some time and finally decided to make it.
