Model parts and supplies storage.
« on: March 03, 2019, 07:30:09 PM »
Seeing other posts, decided to add this.
Doing major room cleanup and organization.  Made use of inactive half of closet.  Had old closet queen clothes hanging there for 20+ years. 
Removed hanger rod.  Assembled nifty metal self standing 12.5 x 30 inch shelving unit.  Shelves adjustable in one inch increments.  Can add the wheels or not.  No carpentry involved.
Here it is in closet with various sizes of plastic bins labeled for content.  Now have organized place to go for parts.  Is not for table side building supplies and tools.  Have about half again the volume of bins to find places for.  This be a great start.
Since these have wheels can be self standing in room and easily moved.  Second one is waiting to be assembled.

Go for it! The first one looks great. You have more model parts than I have kits. I better get busy!

Nice to hear you guys like it.  Is big improvement for model-sewing room operations.  Sorely needed to do this.
Found units at Fred Meyer.  Brand is Whitmor.
Mega-carrier build on pause during room redo process.  Stuff is piled on table where otherwise would be model building.
