I set out to get my shop more organized so that when I add tools and hardware I will actually have a place to put some of it. I’m always looking for ways to store things better and thought maybe you guys could use some of the ideas. the first picture is of the area under my workbench. I was tired of vacuuming up spider webs underneath it, so I made some small rolling bins and filled them with plastic organizers. It’s stuff I don’t get into very often.
the second and third pictures are the area to the right of my bench. my clamp collection is tiny, but growing and I needed a better way to store them. I also have subscribed to about 10 different magazines in my never ending quest for knowledge. The shelving above my rolling tool cart holds the most recent magazines/books and some small parts.
I also have a couple of roller stands that were pretty akward sitting on the floor. I made up that little holder and stuck it on the french cleat on the wall.
The next pic is over my drill press and miter saw. It’s just a 1×3 frame with pegboard. I use it to keep my ts fence and miter gauge, some saw blades, and other misc stuff. Lastly, you can see all the stuff I’ve got crammed into my cabinets.
This is a never ending story, so I’m sure I’ll change this around 10 more times. The french cleats make that pretty easy.
Hope it helps somebody and thanks for looking.
