DIY Wall File
My wife needed a place to store files, and I didn’t want to clutter up her work area. This wall file holder is a simple, easy design that helps to take clutter off her desk.
I used scrap 1x4 and 1x2 pieces left over from other projects, so the cost for this project was minimal.
I attached the two sides pieces (1 x 4 @ 9 in with a 45 degree angle cut at the top) to bottom of file holder (1 x 4 @ 13.5 in) using pocket holes screws. I put the screws on the inside so they would be less visible. If you don't have a pocket hole jig you can use countersink screws.
Then I attached the 2 front slates (1 x 2 @ 12 in) using pocket holes. I did not have enough space to use my drill so I screwed these in by hand..
Finally, I attached the rear slate (1 x 2 @ 12 in) using pocket holes. The purpose of the rear slate is to attach the file holder to the wall.
This project took about an hour to build and even though it is simple it has added a lot of functionality to my wife's work space.
