md tool Make a simple tool holder
Most of us have misplaced a pair of pliers on the workbench, especially when you have limited space. Here is a simple solution, and I mean simple. You should be able to build this out of a scrap piece of wood in about 5 minutes.

It’s just a 2×4 block with 1/2″ holes drilled in at regular intervals (Forstner bit makes nice flat bottoms), spaced for the at-rest width of my pliers handles and as close together as is easy to reach in and pluck out the one I want.
