Paul Krenitsky: Small Parts Storage
Paul introduced contributions showing small parts storage solutions.
In order to cram as much as possible into the smallest space, Bill built a tall cabinet with a lazy susan on the bottom that could hold a bunch of commercial
20" x 16" x 6.5" plastic storage cabinets.
I have attached my small parts storage system that I design based on the 64- and 24-drawer parts Akro-Mils storage cabinets. These
cabinets are all the same size (20" X 16" X 6.5"), and have a variety of drawer sizes. The cabinet is designed to hold these parts
cabinets and to have space for 2 plastic stack-able storage bins between the small parts cabinets on the front and back side of storage
unit. There are four identical levels and each level holds two drawer parts storage cabinets. The storage system is designed to have a
small footprint in the shop and rotates on a Lazy-Susan.
"I use a lot of small plastic storage, some open containers
above the bench for things I use frequently. I also use
plastic tubs under bench to store project related items
such as one tub for drill bits, one for veneering supplies,
one for handheld routers and attachments, one for
sharpening supplies, etc."
