With supplies in hand, I invaded my DH’s workshop. I only needed a saw (almost any kind will do) and some clamps. This is what I came up with.
    Thank you I to need to do something with mine,but my family know not to touch my rulers or fabric scissors.They will pay dearly if they do.

    Very cool organizer for your cutting table, you not only organized the rulers but all that little stuff that wanders around on your table.

    Nice design. I used an office file folder organizer that was higher in the back than the front and it hold all my rulers in a small space to the left of my cutting area on the table...a previously unused space/mess. Glad you could wrangle yours into such a neat and tidy contraption.......good going...

    You did a great job and idea of putting trays in the front is thoughtful.

    You are an awesome designer!

    I too have a gazillion rulers and came up with a solution to organize them... my friend's hubby made me a 24" x 16" peg board to hang on my wall. Many rulers have large holes and hang just fine on the pegboard hooks. For the ones that have small holes, I make thread "loops" that will hang on the hooks. I also like to use the large black binder clips. They are strong enough to grip the rulers securely, and then the top part can hang on the pegboard hooks. I also use the binder clip method for hanging up my quilting stencils.

    How clever you are. I don't think I could do that. That's a lot of work. You are amazing!!!!
