Homemade Wall Tool Holders
What to do wall holders depends on the tools that will be placed on them. The options offered by craftsmen are many. Some of them are based on the use of magnets; there are ideas in which only wooden slats are used. The latter is closer to many because of the ability to make everything clearer, more beautiful.
Start by sorting existing tools by functionality. Then groups are formed according to the design features of their working parts, pens, lower features of the latter. Under each of them, you need to make different seats.
For example, there are many different socket screwdrivers or other tools with similar handles. They are laid out on a table in a "rank" so that the handles of the nearest ones do not interfere with their hands. The length of this layout is guided by the required length of the wooden battens. In addition, measure the thickness of the handles of the tools in the thickest part - the width of the staff should be increased by at least 2 ... 3 cm. Its thickness should be taken 2 ... 3 cm.
A wooden rail of the desired length, width, thickness is cut from the workpiece. It should be planed - with smooth surfaces. Then it is placed below the tools laid out in the “line”, marked out using a square, a pencil where the screwdrivers will be placed. Marking is carried out by lines across the width of the staff.
After that, the midline is drawn from the same side of the rail. The points of intersection with the tool installation lines will be the centers of future holes. The last components: first, in each place with a pen drill, blind holes are drilled with a depth of 1 ... 1.5 cm, then in their center - through holes. Blind holes are made on one side of the rail in the surface of its length / width.
The diameter of blind holes should be larger (by 1 ... 2 mm) of the diameter of the lower part of the largest handle on prepared screwdrivers; through diameter - 1 mm larger than the diameter of the thickest core of the working part under the handle.
Having arranged blind and through holes, they are engaged in marking cuts. To do this, the rail is turned with blind holes down. Using a square and a pencil, draw lines perpendicular to one of the long sides of the rail and tangent to the circles of the circles formed through holes.
Further, using a circular, ordinary hacksaw, cuts are made along the lines drawn from the edge of the rail to the through holes (each with two). As a result, a wooden rail is obtained in which cuts are made halfway on one side, and cylindrical recesses are located on top of them, in the center of the rail.
Further, the rail is treated with sandpaper, polished, rounded corners at the cuts. They are impregnated with anti-rot agents, bugs, and painted. They are hung on the wall so that the cylindrical recesses are on top and the cuts to themselves.
Screwdrivers lead the rod to the end in the cut, lower into the recess. She rests against the bottom of the handle and does not fall down. She can not arbitrarily move and fall out of the cut, as this is prevented by the bottom of her handle, resting against the wall of the recess.
