Organize your tools on an enhanced pallet shelf
I cut myself a deal.
Whatever I’d put in my single car garage turned dream workshop, it would be:
#2. Super easy to make for others to copy.
#3. Hopefully, quite possibly free.
#4. Very me.
And I do believe I’ve achieved that with this one. Organize your tools on an enhanced pallet shelf… perfect for non builders!
It all started with a small pallet. I threw it up there in my original workshop reveal, but the more I looked at it, the more it looked like ‘just a pallet’. I wanted better, but still utilizing one. So here’s what I did…
I indeed started with a small, not overly interesting pallet.
Next, a board and a little crate. They were screwed together…
Any good DIYer worth their weight will decorate before final completion anyway… it’s the law. 🙂
I cut some beefier nicer pallet boards to size, then screwed them on top of the pallet sides. Instant pretty!
I raided a plastic tool storage system for those clear drawers… what a fit!
Cutting two deeper boards to size, they were screwed onto the pallet frame in the middle and bottom.
This made all the diff in the world! Now we’re ready for tools!
I had a small little wooden counter I found on the curb that fit the top perfectly! And created the perfect depth for the palm sander storage. But any deeper board would do.
When using screws or other things, I’m always finding I like to dump the works out, so I can grab them easier. That’s what the odd sized platters, and containers are for. How perfect is that rusty old loaf pan?!
I dug through my collection of wide mouthed mason jar lids, and picked all the rustiest ones. Because this was a special occasion. 😀
I’ll be numbering all the jars as soon as I land something to do so. Numbering them from smallest to largest helps me grab the right ones.
And those plastic bins, raided from an old plastic tool organizer I had on hand fit PERFECTLY!
From the original pallet…

Isn’t it great that ‘cheat building’ exists for ‘us non builders?’
Here’s a few of my other ultimate cheat builds…
chair created from 2 full pallets – it went viral because it’s that easy!
