Welcome to the world of wood working!

Disclaimer: Many people will have different opinions or feelings on this. Here are my opinions:
1. Group items by use and label the drawer/cabinet – sharpening, measuring, sanding, paintbrushes as needed. As I grow older this is increasingly important. Seems to me to be more important if several are sharing tools (you and your wife).
2. Be willing to redo your organization as you grow more experienced, change or add focus areas. ie initially put drills and drill bits near each other. But be willing to change once you have a drill press.
3. Put frequently used items near where they will be used and remember number 2.
4. You will know you have got it right if you can remember and easily retrieve a needed tool.
5. Ask Wife!
6. This is a never ending quest.
