Organizing your workspace

Tip: I was having trouble finding the right piece of strip styrene in my stockpile, and I decided to do something about it. I had a leftover length of 2"-diameter PVC pipe, so I cut it into 6- and 8-inch lengths, stacked the cut pieces (like firewood), and glued them together.

I originally stood this assembly up on end, and glued it to a sheet of plastic; however, I later added PVC "slip caps" that fit into the pipe to close off the ends.

It works well, and helps me find just the right piece when I need one.

I also have a length of 3" pipe for storing styrene strips that are still in the package.

One other thing I do to organize my workspace is use a piece of cork board hung on the wall over my workbench. That board comes in handy for hanging my bags of photoetched pieces and other small parts.
