    • Very nice!  I have a tailgate in the shed that I have wanted to build something like this.  How did you attach the tailgate to the 4x4 wood posts?  I have a lot of exposed metal that protrudes from the sides, so I have been deciding the best way to attach the two.

      • The bottom part of the tailgate I used a 1/2 threaded rod, 60" in length cut down to size from home depot. Used a tap/die set to thread the hole where the tailgate attached to the truck bed and ran it straight through the 4x4 posts. For the top I used the existing brackets on the tailgate and just bolted them through the top of the post/4x4.

    • Love THIS! I was just talking to my brother today about my growing Ryobi tool collection and how I am going to need another cabinet or something for tool storage. I love how you used the wrenches. Looks like I'll have to find me an old cabinet!

      • Thanks I appreciate it! Home depot sells Behr paint, color is Venom and is almost an exact match to Ryobi green. The wrenches I've used on a few projects, they are pretty easy to make it you have access to a drill press. They can be made for around $1 each including hardware and look a whole lot better than most boring drawer pulls!

    • This set up is so impressive! We dig the galvanized metal!

    • Are you able to use standard hooks on that pegboard?  Great looking project!

      By user_duchemin_910392, on June 2, 2018
      • Yes, standard hooks work for this. I live in south Florida and my garage is not climate controlled so everything has to be either galvanized or stainless. Appearance and durability is also a huge plus!

      • Thank you.  I just moved to Seaford, VA and I’m worried about the salt air.  My garage is not a/c as well- except when I can leave the house door open-lol

    • Great looking set up.  What is it that you used to hang the tools with? What is the orange part?  I might have to borrow that look.

      • If you are referring to what's connected to my ryobi tools they are ryobi lanyards that snap into the battery port. They were discontinued in the orange/blue and then brought back in the ryobi green then discontinued again. You can still find some on ebay/Amazon.

      • From a Dolphins fan to a Bills fan, thanks for the help.....
