After the success of the french cleats in my electronics and craft shop I decided to expand into my woodshop as well.
All this custom work is just scraps of plywood, mdf and hardwood and it is all unceremoniously glued or screwed together. No fancy joinery here yet.
This hammer drill box is 12" long and has a cleat for the cord.
Through some weird purchase decisions and one enormous theft I've got 3 battery drills and one impact driver. I'm a big fan of the weight of the 12v Milwauke and I'm similarly a fan of the power of the 18v Makita.
Pliers are on a dowel hung off the wall. Hammers are between two dowels, a bit further off the wall than the pliers.
I had previously built a plane till that sat between 16" joits. I added a cleat to it.
The ongoing "creative" work is to figure out how to organize my PPE. I'm leaning toward head-shaped storage. Maybe skulls? Maybe wig holders? Something like that.

I'm Issac. I live in Oakland. I make things for fun and money. I use electronics and computers and software. I manage teams and projects top to bottom. I've worked as a consultant, software engineer, hardware designer, artist, technology director and team lead. I do occasional fabrication in wood and plastic and metal. I run a boutique interactive agency with my brother Kasey and a roving cast of experts at Kelly Creative Tech. I was the Director of Technology for Nonchalance during the The Latitude Society project. I was the Lead Web Developer and then Technical Marketing Engineer at Nebula, which made an OpenStack Appliance. I've been building things on the web and in person since leaving Ohio State University's Electrical and Computer engineering program in 2007. Lots of other really dorky things happened to me before that, like dropping out of high school to go to university, getting an Eagle Scout award, and getting 6th in a state-wide algebra competition. I have an affinity for hopscotch.
