Chaos Wall by Guido Henn- My Version
« on: October 06, 2017, 02:36 PM »
Thought I would share my version of the 'Chao Wall'.  It is still under construction, but I have made some good progress.  Will post other pictures as the project continues.  Since it's not complete, would appreciate any ideas/feedback.

Regards,
Gerald

Thanks for the nice comments.  I got the pulls on the systainer trays painted green today- it is supposed to be the Festool green (first applied looks to be a nice match) but it is drying a little dark.  Oh well, close enough for me. Also painted the desk top that will go below the window, as well as the top for my Kapex station.  Now I just need to find the right Blum hinges/plates for the doors.

@Cheese, the glides are a 16" full extension from CS Hardware.  Part number is 39.1170.16.

Very nice. Wish I had room to go back to using single depth. One day.

@Gerald_D 
That is fantastic!  Everything so neat and in place.  I will not show this to my better half because it will get me in trouble!  [eek]

It was a pleasure talking with the both of you at Connect.  Glad to see you made it back home safe!

Chaos wall---because order comes from chaos?

I had to do something about my mess.

Looks great, Tom!  Like the double depth pull-outs for the Systainers.  Plenty of storage!

Nice...love the double depth on the Systainers. That’s pretty much a no brainer if you think about it.  Pretty much a no brainer even if you don’t think about it.  [eek]

Had some time over the Christmas break to make doors for my chaos wall as well as add another section on the left side of the window.  I mounted a small desk-top in between them underneath the window and will be adding some storage underneath the top in the future.  I used pegboard for the door panels- thought it would be nice to have screwdrivers and other frequently used tools hanging up since my workbench sits only a few feet away.  'Borrowed' the idea from @Timtool and hope it's a better solution than having them in a tool chest.

Still have some drawers/drawer fronts to make before this is completed- also need to paint the door frames.  I'm torn between painting the door frames grey like the end panels or green to match the tray pulls- what do you think?

Regards,
Gerald

Those look great with the pegboard doors.  I’d personally paint them grey!

Nice organization!

Yes - that was such a good idea from Timtool. I am thinking of doing the same.  [big grin]

If you're into borrowing ideas, did you see the box storage in the recent Transportable System thread? I really like how there are the pull out shelves (just like for the systainers), but the box can be removed for easy access and swapping around, and it retains the same type of "shelf-pull" look.


- also need to paint the door frames.  I'm torn between painting the door frames grey like the end panels or green to match the tray pulls- what do you think?

I think green door frames might be overkill, and either gray or leaving natural looks nicer. If you incorporated that idea about the drawer boxes on pull out shelves you could even paint the boxes grey, and the shelf pulls green.  [smile]

Looking forward to seeing pictures of the next developments.

I actually have considered that- there are a lot of great ideas in that short video.  After watching that, my thought was to make the trays and then make the removable drawers similar size to systainers (1, 2, 3) so that I can change the organization as my needs change.

@tjbnwi,  I like your pull-out board idea- I'm going to incorporate something similar into my MFT cart that I'm in the process of making.

Nice job on the doors @Gerald_D

You'll love the pegboard. Easy to organize and so easy to just grab the right tool. All of my frequently used items are on pegboard or racks. Screwdrivers, hammers, calipers, wrenches, pliers, wire strippers all just a reach away.
