4 Simple Shop Projects

When I was cleaning up my shop after my last project, I had a few things laying around that didn't have a home. So this week, I built four very simple projects to rectify that.

The first is a tape roll holder. Before they were just crowding my workbench, and I can't stand that.

Second was a second screw box holder. My first one has served my shop well, so I just built another one.

Third was a holder for my shop broom.

Fourth was a simple shelf I threw up next to my sink so I could have a spot to put my soap and what not.


  1. Wow, 4 projects in one 3.5 minute video…that’s some sort of record!   I need to make all of those.  Good ideas!

    how’d you build the holder for your spanner set?

  10. Like the screw box holder. Problem is I never end up with the same size screw box!
    For tape rolls, I just use my pegboard and the appropriate pegs.
