    Pliers rack

    Well, spent some time cleaning up the shop. Really too cold to do much of anything serious out there. It was mid 30's out there. So I'd go out and do a little cleaning and sorting at a time, then come back in and get warm. Even sorted through my misc hardware bucket and got the screws sorted by size and back into the appropriate bins.

    Anywhoo,

    One thing I've been wanting is a way to keep all the little wire strippers, crimpers, and cutters I use for my electronics projects organized. Did a bit of research, but didn't find anything I wanted at a price I wanted to pay, so came up with this.

    It's ugly, but functional.

    Its fully functional. And it doesn't need to be ugly. Could use some sanding. Maybe softening the edges. Add a coat of rattle can and its a beauty.

    I was thinking that, but was just too cold to keep fooling around out there!

    Being very much a "function over form" guy, I really like it!

    I am a function plus form kinda guy.

    I would sand it round over edges and gift it a multicolored artistic paint job.

    Really cool project.

    Ok, Took the advice. Sanded it up and slapped a coat of rattle can on it...

    Shouldn't lose it now.
