That's a powerful bank of lights, Wild Bill. Just can't have too many lights IMO.

Kenny , have you thought of using old filing cabinets for draw storage they come in 1 draw to 5 draw sets & are really good to use as they can be placed on each other , they're tough , large storage area inside, draws are on rollers for easy opening and they look tidy & there all metal built 

i use them for putting sprockets & pulleys in + engine parts , electric stuff & so on & they are rat & mouse proof as most have a dummy bottom in them

I have one 4-drawer unit that's packed to the gills right now. Not much happening today, the rain has me feeling low. We have a Flash Flood warning until this evening. We've gotten over 1.5" so far since midnight. More on the way!

Lights is right on that one picture!  That's what I need to improve.  I painted my whole garage white inside to be more light, but now is all covered with stuff hanging or cabs and etc., can barely see the walls most places. The outline of the tools and for inventory is from the schools that I went to. That is how they kept stuff in place. End of classes, they looked at the wall and we couldn't leave till all the spots had there wrenches and sockets back in place.  Many times had to go out into cars and look under hoods and inside them to find the missing tool. MOST of the time it was found. OR, sometimes when sweeping up and clearing the benches too. I was always going to do that, but never have. I DO wipe off the tools and put away, another thing learned young, that did stay with me, MOST of time anyway. Once in awhile I slip and leave it all lay, depending on how frustrated the shop time might have been for the day! :smilewink:

Once I get totally moved I'm starting on my 20x30 shop. One of my problems is having to split it up between wood projects & tractor work. I'm enjoying all the posts along with Kenny's shop. It's interesting to see how others function & their ideas.

It's still a mess! Didn't do much yesterday due to the rain. My sorting table is outside! May dive into something today.

My new shop still has tons to be done as far as organizing.   Much of the stuff is still at the old shop, but always run out of steam doing repair work before getting to the organizing.  I'm spending a lot of time shooting between old & new shops on the 4 wheeler bringing tools back & forth.

That is a real challenge! I'll keep whittling at it. Not much else can be done right now until it dries up some.

Yes lots of lights are good but they don't throw much light leaning on the end wall still in boxes like they are in my shop.

Something to think about when the 'fridge' is larger than the tool box.
