  1. Project Steps

    1. Step: 1

      Large 5d08548c 3058 4e7f 896c eb3687289fa5

      Make all of your cuts. Then assemble the side pieces. Use your 18-Volt Brad Nailer to attach a 1x3 piece to a 1x2 piece with 1 1/4” brad nails and wood glue. Build this assembly twice.

    2. Step: 2

      Large 94d14a37 2974 415f 8a3f 90e420d4bdfc

      Attach the two side pieces to the top and bottom 2x4 boards with wood glue, from the top of the side pieces and into the 2x4 boards. The top and bottom of the side pieces should be flush with the top and bottom of the 2x4 boards.

    3. Step: 3

      Large d14e2767 21a2 43d8 9c01 d5fe90c27764

      Center the middle 2x4 board under the side pieces and attach it the same way as the top and bottom boards.

    4. Step: 4

      Large 9b8b79c7 50d5 4ebf b732 f2b06230d2f1

      Finally, add a finish, hooks, baskets and labels and you’re done! You can get creative with this piece and use any kind of hardware and baskets. Make sure to share your builds with us on social and use #shanty2chic so we can share them too!

  • I think I'm going to build this project as soon I replace all my tools that were stolen. I have a new 12x16 building to turn into my hobby shop. I already have a Ryobi table saw. They couldn't load it I guess.

  • I love this wall organizer. I ended up making one for my mother, sister, and myself. I have a couple of friends that now want one.
