Yo whats up everybody now as most of you know I moved about 3 weeks ago I put out my shop tour last week. Well I just finished getting my pegboard up after I filmed and realized that pegboard works ok but then I started having problems like I couldn’t get stuff to stay on so I decided to look at other storage options. Well I could use a cleat system which basically has a angle cut all the way down and it also has a angle shape on the back of the box and it hangs on the groove. The only problem with this is that you really need a lot of wood and a lot of space and because I only got 1 wall in my shop and theres 3 windows this probably wouldn’t work. Then you got plastic racks which work really good because you can put just about anything on them as long as it fits and I have them stacked 6 high in my garage. The only problem is that they take a lot of space. Then theres the plastic drawers where you might have like 5 small plastic drawers and these work ok I use these for sand paper storage. The problem with these is that its not easy to see whats in there even if there at eye level so having small things in there doesn’t really work. Then theres shelves which basically are great for staring tool boxes and tool cases because they are easy to access and they work good to hang clamps off of just make sure you got weight on the back of the shelf so the weight from the clamps doesnt pull the shelf over. Then theres the good old glass bottles and these are great for holding small parts and screws but they can break very easily so try not to drop them. Then theres tool boxes and tool boxes work great for transporting tools and protection them but in a shop its hard to access stuff at the bottom. And the final on my favorite cabinets because cabnets dont take up a lot of room and they also can hold a lot of tools if you put hooks on the door. Just make sure you secure it into wall studs because smaller cabinets are not always wide enough to secure to both wall studs.
