In most workshops space is limited. So you need to find a way to utilize every bit of space that you can. One area that is often overlooked is the space underneath shelves and cabinets. But this can actually be a great place to store small tools. All you need is a few magnets and some sheet metal.

In this project, I show you how to make simple magnetic mounting brackets that you can use to hang small metal hand tools such as screw drivers and pliers. You can small brackets with a single magnet or you can make long mounting strips with multiple magnets. Hanging your tool keeps them easily accessible and frees up some of your valuable horizontal space.

Here’s the project on MAKE and Instructables.
