I’ve been in desperate need of shop storage for a long time. I thought I was just going to build drawers, but I was worried that I would lose track of what I had and end up digging through every drawer every time.

Laura Kampf published a video where she made a storage rack with metal. I don’t have a welder, so I decided to go with plywood. The boxes are supposed to hold shoes. The lids help to keep the dust out.

I hope you enjoy the video. Thanks! https://youtu.be/wG5OEhF7DWM

Thank you, Robbi! It has already been worth my time—I have a lot less junk cluttering up the garage, and I can see everything I need right away.

I have done a version of this for years. It is awesome…mine are labeled with a labelmaker as they never seem to go back where they started and it makes it easier. One little tip though, I have one unlabeled where I put stuff “to be sorted”, but be diligent with emptying it once a month or so…...I can not tell you how easy it makes to find stuff!

I’m using an interesting filing system, too—I’m attempting to sort items thematically. So everything “sticky” goes in one drawer (includes self-adhesive felt pads, UHMW tape, electrical tape, masking tape, etc), everything used for hanging goes in a drawer (picture hangers, command strips, wall anchors, etc). So even if I don’t see the thing I need, I’ll see something it is similar to and check that drawer first. So far so good.

I’m sure it’ll lead to some hilarious mistakes at some point but I’ll be sure to take photos when that happens. :)
