Quick Release Tools

I'm continually packing and unpacking my toolbox to move my tools between home and work, which has led to an improvement in the bench: Velcro! A strip of Velcro sewn to my tool wraps for needle files and hand files/emery sticks, the matching Velcro strip hot-glued to the side of the bench, and Voila! Quick-release tools. They're easy to access and keep in order at the bench, and when I need to take them with me, I just roll them up.

My collection of pliers was too heavy for the magic of Velcro, so I went with a traditional plier rack. This one wraps around the corner, keeping the tools out of the way, and is padded with fabric to prevent the plier springs from getting caught on the wire rack.
