Screwdriver holders are a convenient addition to garages, wood shops and other work areas. They are a simple project that can be made out of scrap wood. They function similarly to pencil or brush holders. It is a piece wood that has evenly spaced holes drilled through it to allow for the end of a screwdriver to fit through. Screwdriver holders can be bought in stores, but when looking at the simplicity of the device it's pointless to spend the money.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Lay your 1-by-4-inch board flat and horizontal. Draw a line across the board that is parallel with the 12-inch edge and 1-inch away from one of the edges. Draw one more line that is parallel with the 12-inch edge, and 1 inch away from the first line, and 2 inches away from the same 12-inch edge.

  2. 2

    Draw 10 lines that are perpendicular to the first two. Space them 1 inch apart so the two outside lines are 1 inch away from the ends of the board. Drill an 3/8-inch hole where each line intersects. Erase the remaining pencil marks.

  3. 3

    Use your stud finder to located studs in the wall where you would like to hang your screwdriver holder. Position the 2-by-2-inch board horizontally on the wall so its 6-inch centre is over the stud. Use your level to ensure the board is truly horizontal. Screw two 4-inch screws through the board and into the stud.

  4. 4

    Position the 1-by-4-inch board on top of the other board so the ends are flush. The holes should not be covered underneath by the 2-by-2-inch board. Screw through the 1-by-4-inch board and into the board that is attached to the wall. Use four 2-inch screws that are spaced 3 inches apart.
