Default Storing extension cords and air hoses on wall

I was going to buy a plastic thing for storing your garden hoses to use for my extentions cords and air hoses in my shop , but I went to HD today and there all put away till spring.
So this got me to thinking about making a wall rack to store them instead out of 2/4's . Thinking a board that goes on the wall ,then have two pieces secured with screws I guess as I don't know how to mortise and tenon , and then maybe put another board on the end with a little over lap . Guess I could dado in a slot for more strength .

Just wondering what others have done

I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

I like these...different sizes for different uses...different shapes also (hooks, square, etc...)

I use them for extension cords, air hoses, etc... don't work as well for garden hoses.

Everbilt Heavy-Duty Wall Mounted Bike Hanger-01221 - The Home Depot

...and then there's these...they also come with hanging carabiners...heavier duty and they hang well on hooks, nails, screws...

HitchMate QuickCinch Straps in Black (10-Pack )-4084 - The Home Depot

and these...but they make heavier and cheaper...

in HD they are in the same area as the tool bags...

Why are you putting MORE stuff on the walls. You're the guy going over the falls in a canoe...but with no paddle.
OK; no working in the shop in the cold; I get it. But unless this is the game plan for ever, you need to stop complicating the wiring/insulation plan! (Wait...what? There's a plan?! :O ))

Dan, I told you before...it's not a plan until you put it down onto the paper!

Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

I use a garden hose hanger for my big air hose and extension cords, a cheap HF manual hose reel for my 100' small bore air hose, and the end of the front rail of my TS fence for the 25' HD extension cords I use all the time. I just have to move them if I make a cut over 30 inches....

Important detail, the hose reel is on a cleat, and can be removed if needed. It is a pain to roll back up that way, though

Take a look at my post from yesterday.
http://www.routerforums.com/tools-wo...-cord-pro.html
The nice thing about these they don't take up much space. I also am making everything mobile just add a hook to mobile unit and wheel away. The units have a hole with a grommet to hang them. I take some pictures to show you my ideas. I just ordered another for my air hose get that Tuesday. These make it easy to put away and no more tangle.

Just to drive you crazy Dan . Apparently it's working

I can't stand things on the floor and it would be nice to not be tripping as I'm getting the walls wired.
And if I did things in proper order I'd loose my title as RainMan
