How to Make Tool Organizers with Gutters

I carefully cut gutters into 5-inch lengths using my miter saw. Then I arranged them vertically in a grid pattern inside the tool bag.

When I needed to find a new tool storage idea for my garage that would also fit in my new truck bed toolboxes, I discovered this tip: I found a perfectly sized tool bag that I was not using in my garage, but it lacked compartments that my larger tool bag has. I like to keep my tools organized in a way that I can see all my tools at once and so I can reach in to get a tool without having to empty the entire bag to get to it.

I looked around my shed to see what I could use to divide the tool bag into sections, and I found a section of PVC gutter downspout that fit the bill perfectly. I carefully cut the downspout into 5-in. lengths using my miter saw. Then I arranged them vertically in a grid pattern inside the tool bag and glued them together.

The downspout can be purchased for about $10 dollars at a home center, and the entire project took me about 45 minutes to complete. Bert Jandy
