    Shed Long Handle Tool Wall Organization

    looking for any inexpensive or cool ideas on how to hang a lot of hand tools (shovels, rakes, picks, etc.) on a wall in a shed with exposed studs...i have multiples of a lot of these types of tools so i'm trying to be efficient with the space...at the moment i'm looking at nailing a board across the studs and just drilling out some holes for pegs or large nails and just hanging them all on those...can't really think of a cheaper option at the moment...thanks in advance

    maybe something like this...

    Beyond standing them in a corner, a board with nails is the cheapest way out. Use heavy nails with pilot holes for best results.

    I'm firmly in the "pile the shit in the corner" camp.
    That PVC setup is nifty. I even have some scrap PVC laying around. Requires more wall space than I have though.
    Wonder if there's a way to stack 'em..

    I like when people just hang the heads with a couple nails and make an outline of the tool

    We drill a hole through the handle to hang them on nails.

    I lean a pallet against the wall and slide the long handle into the resulting slot, leaving the implement portion exposed

    I went to Home Depot and bought the Gladiator stuff. Tons of accessories, good price, a dummy could install.

    I bought the kit to start and then added things here and there. The 8 foot kit below comes in two 4 foot sections.

    may end up going this route but probably won't be hanging anything from the handle unless it has a d-grip or t-grip

    No string, we put it right over the nail.

    I like Randy’s pallet idea.

    not my idea, I stole the idea from somewhere else, or rather my GF did, either way, it is how we organize our garden implements

    The pallet thing is cool but you need a high ceiling to remove the tools. I did something similar on the back of my shed doors, but the doors have to be open to pull anything up and out. Works well otherwise.

    true but it seems like an excessive amount of wood hanging on the wall

    that's a good point having to pull them up quite a ways before ...makes the pegs large nails into a 2x4 sound like a better option cause they don't have to be pulled straight up to be removed...i may use the pvc idea for short handle tools

    these are similar as well
