Wall space in any functioning room is extremely valuable real estate. I had designed a french cleat style organization system on the front of my cabinet doors. This worked okay and provided quick and easy access to the tools I use everyday. The system utilized pegs to hang tools from, this would cause issues when I would open and close the cabinet doors. The advantage of quick access to the tools on the door definitely outweighed the inconvenience of opening and closing the doors cautiously.
I recently watched one of Izzy Swan’s videos where he used Fastcap’s Kaizen foam on the back of his bench wall to store tools and items he uses very frequently. This instantly click and my mind began to figure out how to make this happen on the front of the cabinets.
I designed a simple frame that gets screwed to the front of the door. This frame would cradle the section of foam and hold it into position. I found that driving a few course threaded screws through the back of the door into the foam helped keep it in place.
Kaizen foam is a produce made by Fastcap. This product is amazing! It is constructed of 1/8″ layers of foam that are glued together. The key to a great fitting tool, is proper tracing, and cutting a hair inside your line. Once the cut has been made, remove the required foam with a few fingers.
