Easy Storage Solutions From A to Z
Nuts and Bolts
As in: All those loose thingamabobs driving you screwy.
Contain nuts and bolts in jars. “Grandpa’s wood-shop solution of attaching glass Ball jars underneath a table or a shelf is tried-and-true,” says Ted McCann, a Brooklyn-based custom woodworker. Nail the lids to the underside of a surface near where you store your tools (see Tools), then twist the jars into place. Put like-size nuts and bolts in one jar and wood screws in another. Also attach an empty jar so that when you’re working on a project, you can keep the hardware for it in one place.
