Got a nice note today from the author of the To Travel is Better that to Arrive blog.  Daus has been gradually upping the storage capacity of his DIY workshop and had some pretty neat ideas to share.  Here’s a photo essay:

airline carts for stock storage

Track down some old airline food carts for stock storage:  they’re long, wheeled, and open at both ends…

under bench file cabinets

Track down old file cabinets–they’re sturdy, cheap and can be used as the carcasses for all sorts of custom storage.  This one is on a rolling frame and nests underneath the workbench the Emco CNC Mill is on…

File cabinet converted to vertical locker

This filing cabinet was converted to a vertical locker by removing the drawers and making a wooden door of the same color.  Used filing cabinets are cheap and easy to modify!

Just because there is no room to open a cabinet door is no reason not to have a cabinet there…

Thanks for the great ideas, Daus!
