    30 minute Rack for Squares

    It doesn't get much more basic than this. I'll slap some shellac on it to match the spoke shave rack. 7-1/2" x 3" x 3/4". Seven slots on 1" centers starting 3/4" from the end. The bevel along the long edge at the back allows the fixture to tip when inserting the 'L' hooks into the pegboard.

    That's a neat rack, but people tell me I'm a wild and crazy guy, not a square at all.
    Cheers,

    Glenn, I thank you for posting this. In setting up my shop...one of the things I still have to do is get my peg board organized. My plan is to use mostly hooks however since I just acquired a couple more squares the other day this is a simple project that I will definitely use/copy. Thank you for the tip.

    I like my tools with holes, so I can just slip them on a peghook.

    My buddy slips rubber tubing over the peg hooks I gave him.

    Im bringing you an assortment of hooks, 100, 150, 200? this way you can keep buying accessories for your shop and always have a place to hang them.
