The half moon cutouts work better than using an inlay in my opinion. I got these from Red Rose Reproductions some time ago. There is a blog from Lost Art Press that explains the use of them.Thanks. I kind of suspected it was something like that but the cutouts near the ends threw me off. Looked sort of like a level with no center vial.
How true and it can't be helped. Tools come and go and how you think things should be organized meets the reality of actual use. A couple of things are crystalizing from this journey of building a tool wall.Here, here. Congrats on that setup. Our shops are an evolving thing. Never a destiation, always a journey; and with any luck, a pleasant one more often that not.
My ex-father in law built a tool chest console.... it was about 6' tall, 3' or so wide and about 2' feet or more deep... he had leaves in the upper part like pages on a book that held a lot of his tools... don't remember what in the lower half, but may have been just like the upper half...when he passed away would have loved to have got my hands on that cabinet....unfortunately I was already in Texas and he in California..... Al was a very very precise craftsman in what ever he did.... he was a machinist by training, but when I knew him he worked for Pacific Telephone as a manager of their dining unit, then later of their internal mail system.One big plus on the wall hung is that it can still evolve and it can fold.
