I always seen to have at least a dozen projects either in the works or on the back burner or in the gathering materials stage or in a ‘cool, I want to make this” stage. Does anyone have a great spreadsheet or app to keep all of the details separate and organized?

When I’ve got more than one project going on at the same time in my shop, or I’ll get to another one later, I don’t have spreadsheet made up for it.

I color code with different color tape on each of the parts for each project. I also keep a workshop workbook that’s many years old with a material and cutlist and notes of each of the projects, with the color of the project also on both the cutlist and the notes.

I use Todoist. Great project orientation, project templates for re-use and task management.
