Here's an easy way to make more space at your work table, as long as you have some hard drive magnets lying around, that is. Hard drive magnets are strong, so they should be able to hold many different types of tools.
Just glue some of those magnets (taken from old mechanical hard drives, not SSDs) to the underside of a shelf, as Instructables user udubinsky has, and your tools can hang there in reach but off your work surface.
Just make sure you glue them up really securely. You could also mount them on the wall (as in this DIY knife block).
