This is an organization project out of necessity. I use a fair amount of brass in my wood projects. I buy some and I have friends on the look out for any being scrapped. I have had it squirreled away all over the place. There are times when I thought I did not have the needed size and it really was here- but where??
So when I put the new slides on my short pieces drawers ( last photo), I had to clean them out and I went hunting for any brass in all the other storage places.
I made an inventory of lengths of round stock and made this box ( out of scrap plywood laying around) to hold the various size pieces. The 4th photo is the box for the real short pieces that hangs on the long box with a couple of screws in key hole slots on the back. I added a support block for insurance on account of the weight. It is all in one place now !!!!!!!!!
The 5th shot shows a process shot- all of it was glued together- then I put in a bunch of staples afterward for insurance. It is finished with shellac.
