Made a small room in my basement a couple years back. It's where I have a few tools for the simple jobs around the house. The main tenants are my fishing stuff. Rods, reels, lures, are stored there. Also we refinish and work on beater guns I get now and again. It's called the Game Room.
When I built it, I was happy to get most of my stuff in one place. Recently, it's becoming a bit frustrating as it's really becoming a disorganized dumping ground. Finding a clear space to work on a small project is a hassle. This was where it started.
Small bench, some old boxes and reels up top. Surf plugs/lures hanging off the shelf by their hooks.
Reels and wood plane parts under the bench.
My goal was to get more storage up top, without compromising the limited bench top space. So I added two shelves and two aluminum rods to hang lures from. The rods worked out well, as you can slide the lures along to get to ones in the back row. It also allows them to max out the space available. The upper shelf I put some of my favorite surf reels on and the bottom one will be used for commonly used oils, lubricants and finishes. This is it pretty much packed out. Cut way down on stuff under the bench. Used all scrap wood, leftover stain, aluminum, etc.
