Reuse A Tennis Racquet As A Swing-Out Workbench Caddy

Here’s a neat trick to put an old tennis racquet to some use, even if some of its strings are out of shape. With a single screw, you can make a swing-out caddy for your tools at the workbench, says The Family Handyman.

All you need is a screw and a drill — it will be easier with a wooden racquet:

Drill a hole in the handle and screw it to the underside of a workbench. Position the racquet so it can swing in and out from under the table. Use it to hold tools, parts or other small items.

Choosing the position is important — make sure there is enough room for the racquet to swing out and be concealed again when you don’t need it. The racquet is a great holder for items like a screwdriver, and you could even lay down other tools flat on the string mesh.
