:ray1:I like this idea, but I use a 1 1/2 or 2 in. zippered binder ptyd :beer2:
Someone near Hamilton Ohio go check on Nick, he's been talking to himself. Next thing you know he'll be called something like gabby, chatter, blabber or mumbles...whoops, strike that, mumbles is off the books.
Thats probably a good idea.
Ya... It definitely is.
Gee, it doesn't sound like you guys have very many materials to store. I have a cheap, particle board cabinet; 5 feet tall 30 inches wide and 15 inches deep, with shelves holding 27 clear plastic shoe boxes and a few other containers. The shoe boxes are lableled in general categories (saddles and necks, dubbing, hair & fur, etc.) and make it fairly easy to find things. Each of the shoe boxes holding susceptible materials gets a couple of mothballs annually.
I also have a hard shell suitcase. My intention was to build a tying desk of sorts into one side of it so that when it is opened I have my vise, tools tying space on the bottom side and my most used materials accessable pouches/compartments in the rest of the suitcase. That was the intention..
So far it is just a big box, with my stuff thrown in it.
I had stuff all over, what a mess. I bought an antique roll top desk, pretty good sized. It is now filled, over filled actually. I have some stuff still in plastic boxes here and there and need to really decide where in my garage/shop the desk will sit and then nicely organize all my stuff together.
I took pegboard and hung it on my wall with a bunch of pegboard hooks and hang everything on them. it works great
...the larger economical plastic tool box works for me, along with large ziploc baggies. That is if I put it away. Usually strewn all over my desk.
I use these recently acquired drawers that I finished to match the roll top for routinely used items. Not to mention the "stuffed" four drawer legal size file cabinet and several large boxes of material in the garage!!
