So as I mentioned in my earlier blogs for this year’s ShopQuest I wanted to get rid of my wood rack. I decided that was going to take a major effort and instead to do a little better allocation of space on it and see how it works this year. I spent a weekend cleaning it up and finding space for some of the wood and getting rid of some of it as well. I am not a fan of throwing out wood but some of it just was not going to be useful at all. I narrowed it down a little further and used pieces I had to build in compartmental shelves.
This now allows me to organize all of my smaller stuff such as pen blanks, game blanks, and wine tilt blanks. As well as other stuff such as colored wood and exotic small pieces.
The plastic boxes I picked up at the big orange for just 99 cents each. I must have bought a dozen or more and they have been put to use in numerous places around the house. The ones here are used to separate pen blanks. I am sure I am going to be adjusting this for the next few weeks but so far I like the idea and hope it will work. May just decide next year to build a new rack on a bit smaller scale with plenty of smaller shelves. We’ll see…
Thanks for looking.
