    Cool. Do you have a pic of the parts separate? I want to make something sort of similar. I’m not sure how to mount it to the wall.

    Here is a spool shelf design I did that uses 3/4″ EMT, plastic parts & inexpensive metal shelf brackets.  Works nicely and out of the way above the doorway in my room.

    That’s a nice shelf idea. I’ll have to try that one.

    I borrowed your mounts and made a hanger for my table saw fence.

    I wanted to hang it right side up, because I always leave my tape measure and pencil on top.

    I really need to clean off that bench though…

    Also, that is the clearance home Depot blue pine boards I’m using for the tool wall. So far, so good. It’s taking a really long time to get things hung up though.

    That’s the nice thing with having osb walls.  Screw holes don’t really show.  If I don’t like where a tool holder was mounted I can move it without having to fill holes to keep it looking nice.

     

    Also, I use these screws to mount stuff to the walls.  They’re pan head, so no countersinking needed.  They make them for wood and metal self tappers.  I think they look better than sheetrock screws too.

    I have those exact sames screws, then my buddy came by and told me about the GRK brand he uses on decks. I am in love, so many sizes and head types (flush, hidden, washer), the part I really like is most of them have the smooth part to keep things tight as heck.

    I used those GRK when remounting the rafter brackets (not sure if that’s the right name) on my house last year. The brackets use 4×6 lumber (1920 vintage, so full 4″x6″) so I needed something that could go through 4″, then two layers of cedar and another of ship-lap, then into a 4×4 frame member. They made them big enough and with a torx head so I could drive them with a battery powered screwdriver (did I say these were for the dormer roofs on the second story? Didn’t want to have a cord pulling down).
