I like many Lj’s have a shop in the basement and as we all know with basement shops we need to maximize the space that we have. I made a plywood rack in the ledge going down the stairs, a spot to keep solid and also a platform where some extra stuff for the dust collector and old tools live. This really helps save space!

Great use of available space. I used to screw baby food jars to the undersides of the stair treads so that screws and nails were available.

So much for that wasted space, nicely done.

Cool Idea.

Storage under the steps also works!

That’s putting dead space to good use.

Good idea. I think I spend half my woodworking time just trying to fit stuff into my modestly sized shop.
