    Show us your Worksharp Storage

    Hello:

    I picked up a WS3000 on closeout at Sears last night. I put the abrasives on the glass platens and checked it out.

    I sharpened a chisel and 2 block plane blades. I like it.

    Anyway - I have to figure out how to store all the doo-dads and such so if you have one - show us what you've done.

    Cheers

    Jim

    PS: I'll get pics and post them shortly.

    shop cabinets

    The biggest thing everyone has to deal with is storing items in the shop. And the smaller the shop the more important it becomes to make the best use of every spare inch of space. My favorite storage idea has been this workbench. The 16 drawers holds as much as what is in many other woodworkers entire shops. Just imagine a box that is three feet high, 26 inches deep, and eight feet long; and then imagine how much you could throw into it. By filling that space with drawers, everything is easily accessibleÖ

    I have built a couple of dozen shop cabinets over the last 25 years. Many can be seen on my shop tour from a couple of years ago.

    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    It is indeed but, where is the Worksharp storage idea?

    Come on guys, help Jim out. We know you've got them. Are your machines really just setting on the bench, on a shelf, in a cabinet with all the spare abrasives, wheels, chunk-o-rubber, etc. just piled next them? Let's pitch in for the forum.

    I'll be beginning construction of my multipurpose workshop soon. I have several ideas for creative storage. Can't wait to post them when they are done.

    Well what fun is it for me if you guys get to see it before its done. I'd rather you be bugging me for sketches till its done then just give them out so easily.
