Jackie, it looks like you have a nice shop. It certainly is well organized and I like your "mayonnaise" storage system. That is a pretty neat storage idea but it would take me a long time to go through that many mayonnaise jars. :) It is a good idea though. I currently just toss my hardware in a drawer, since like offcuts I can't bear to part with screws, bolts, nuts etc., and then have to sort through the "mess" to find a particular bolt or nut that I am needing. I also like your router bit carousel. That is a good idea for bit storage. It keeps the bits separated and organized while occupying a relatively small footprint. It is also nice to have as much headroom as you do in your shop. I have always wished I had more in mine (it is 92" to the bottom of the ceiling joists) so that lumber and plywood could be stored vertically.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed touring your shop.

Thank you so much for your comments. YOu can use any jar that you empty. I always use plastic though, like spices and peanut butter. My Mom and I use a lot of mayonaise. I got so tired of looking for screws and washers and all the other little stuff. I also take the empty jar to the hardware store for drywall screws in different lenghts. They sell them by the pound and in a paper bag that always rips. I put them in the jar at the cash register and then talk to the owner and he let me weigh them and put them right in my jars by the barrels of screws and just take the marked bags to the cashier. I have a bunch of extra mayo jars and now my 80 year old mother lives with me and I am putting her munchies in there so she can see what she has and also can open them easier. I wish I could have posted more pictures but it would only let me post 6. THere is a lot more to that shop than just those pictures. It is actually a metal building/barn. THe roof leaks and I wish it was a real garage. LOL

Patron,
Thanks for the welcome. Funny you mention squirrel. I had one living in the shop and it tore the place apart and chewed electrical wires and such. What a mess. Can't do woodworking without electricity. LOL.
I really like to have the stuff I use a lot at my fingertips and other stuff labeled. I get so tired of searching for something I know I have, somewhere…lOL
Jackie
