DIY Tip of the Day: Tape Dispenser Caddy. Keep your tape rolls in one place with this handy tape dispenser. You’ll need a 1 1/2-in. dowel, 3/4-in. plywood and a hacksaw blade. Notch the sides and screw everything together. Saw the dowel ends to fit in the notches and screw the hacksaw blade on with the teeth overhanging the plywood. Fasten the dispenser to the workbench. Thanks to R. B. Himes for this idea!
DIY Tip of the Day: Storing bench-top tools. Workbench cluttered with bench-top tools? Lag-screw each tool to a 3/4-in. base. Saw a 40-degree angle on one edge of a 1 x 3 and cut it into cleats. Screw two cleats to each base with the angle facing inward. Fasten a board with a 40-degree edge to the studs. Hang the tools from either end of the base. Hang only lighter-weight bench-top tools.
