This time, instead of wiring the lights on the top of my shelves against the wall, I did so on the sides of the shelves itself. This makes the walls look a little cleaner.
...and 2 on the top shelf to hold my razor saw.
The top shelf is my green Ryobi shelf, and the bottom shelf is my orange Black & Decker shelf (with a red Skil Jigsaw).
Underneath, the power strip is nicely protected from dust.
With the first shelf done I can now go out and get material for the second shelf. But before I do that I needed to fix something. Right before making these shelves, I had made a final workshop cart to hold my fan.
(You can see that build by clicking here).
This cart turned out great, but at the time I made it, I didn't have material to make a good drawer front (MDF or solid wood - I didn't want to use plywood). So, I disassembled the old wall shelf I had just taken down.
I was happy to get rid of that other helmet shelf I made, but I feel as if these 2 clamp shelves are missing something...
Then I put the peg board onto the bar clamp rack.
Then I put the bar clamps and hooks on.
I unfortunately couldn't fit as much as I wanted on this shelf, but it holds my small Bessey clamps and my 2 Irwin Quick Grip clamps. Because I could only fit my clamps underneath the large bar clamps, I had to find a new home for my table saw's taper jig.
On the top of this shelf I removed my helmets and attached my metal spring clamps, and my 2 big screw clamps.
My helmets wound up on my old clamp rack...
...which now that I compare it to all the other shelves, I'm thinking I can add peg board to this one as well. Behind all my small bar clamps are several other metal clamps I do not use because they're simply out of sight and not easily accessible.
So I removed all the clamps from both those shelves and took them off the wall. The small shelf that holds my Kreg clamps will be discarded since I can actually fit them all on this shelf with a little rearranging.
I purposely put all the shorter clamps on the top rack so I had room to hang hooks on the pegs below. The longer clamps are on the bottom rack and actually do not interfere with my wood cart or surface planer below them.
The only remaining shelf in my workshop is this smaller one which holds my planers, dust brush/pan and my shop blower. I had hoped I could fit some of this stuff on my new shelves, but in actuality, this small shelf doesn't bother me. But perhaps I can fit some leftover peg board on this shelf as well.
The bottom holds my dust pan and brush like before, but I also added a hook to hang my pinchy pick up tool.
