Drawer Organizer - Files
I continue my ongoing effort to keep frequently used items close at hand, regularly used items a few steps away and seldom used items out in the shed. As part of this effort I have a sort of tool purgatory. Tools who have not yet been granted a classification are placed in trial configurations and locations. These locations may change, groupings evolve and eventually they reach a semi-stable state.
I had various files in a drawer at the bench. They were kept from banging into each other by a scrap of wood with slots cut into it. Slots were added, widened, ignored, etc. while this concept ground through purgatory over time.
The day of decision arrived this morning. I removed the lowly piece of "test" scrap and replaced it with a nice piece or "real" scrap. Carefully cut the length to create a friction fit and load it back up with those tools that have survivied the decision making phase. Other files and such are relegated to the "few steps away" zone until their ultimate fate is determined .
This semi-permenant move has displaced my spokeshave who will continue purgatory until the next epiphany.
