This tool rack measures 48 x 48 inches but can be adapted to fit your workshop wall space.
This wall-mounted carousel, built by reader James Bowler, makes it easy to keep lathe tools handy and organized.
In an effort to further tidy up the workshop, we have made a concerted effort to figure out exactly what sort of storage you might need. This series of four handy tool racks and shelves should be just the job.
This is a link to a Google 3D SketchUp drawing for a tool rack that I built in my basement to get some more space to keep my tools organized. The two large posts are the posts in my basement that I attached the rack to. This can be adjusted to go straight into wall studs or however it will work in your scenario. Tools used where a circular saw and a drill guide to make sure the holes that hold the panels were aligned properly. It was a fairly easy build.

Store your tools with an ingenious space-saving tool rack that operates much like a book.
Since my workbench is in the middle of the shop, there is not an electrical outlet nearby to plug my power tools into. And trailing an extension cord across the floor is a safety hazard. So I decided to build an overhead rack to hang a strip of outlets above the bench.
