I think you need more stuff Oh yeah, and more room!

What are you looking for, specifically? I would get the panther boxes from under the bench and put them on the side wall, and put like items together. Empty boxes that the items came in can be stacked off to the side wall instead of taking space up on the working wall, etc.

Looks like you have a great space!

I would love to get rid of the boxes but I am in Germany and will move back to the US in a few years. The boxes are full and I will need them for the move.

Integra, Thanks very much. I will do that. The Peg Board is a great Idea for above the table.

As for the bench this is not my permanante home. I have to move back to the US in a few years so can build anything but the shelves and table only cost me 80.oo total.

Since your sponsored by Picco, you should send me your RB's haha.

If I were in your situation, I would add a lot more shelves. Also make designated spots for your items, so when it's finally organized it stays that way.

I'd say either get a bigger table or move the tires and other not so necessary stuff. Your work space itself is too small and cramped by little not needed things.

You have $10K worth of gear and $100 work bench. LOL

Good problem to have!! If you are moving, I would get good quality containers for all the stuff you dont access often and then build yourself a good work bench..

That is a good poing and I never thought about it that way... I will work on getting a bigger table.

Default Workbench Organization

You are off to a great start already. I liked the idea of better storage containers; something that is stackable and shippable for when you need to move again. However, when storing square stuff there is nothing like square boxes to let everything fit nice and tight.

Adding some larger shelves on the wall to the right might give some of the boxes a different home than window sills and the floor. With your current shelving you are only using small portions of each shelf. If you can, try adding additional shelves to each of your existing shelf units.

One of the biggest things I try to do is keep my main work surface as clutter free as possible.
** First I would relocate power supplies, chargers, soldering irons, extra tire, battery, engine, etc… items to the adjacent shelves to the workbench so they are still easily accessible but not on the bench. Remember, you can always do things like move the soldering iron and holder onto the workbench for times when you are actually soldering but when not in use it can sit on a shelf.

** Second, have little spots for big take off items on the adjacent shelves such as bodies, tires, engine, etc… That way when you get home from the track and start wrenching on your buggy you can take off the bulky items right away and put them in a good spot. That way they do not take up real estate on your workbench every time you work on your car. I also have spots on my shelves for every car I have so they don’t have to be stored in the hauler bags or perched on a stack of boxes. Wouldn’t you know it would be that stack of boxes that I would need to get into the next time I’m looking for parts.

** Third, the idea about the pegboard is a good one because of easy way to organize replacement parts, take a quick inventory of stuff you are getting low on, and easy access to items you use often.

My old workbench was made of five 2x10” lumber 6’ long sitting next to each other. I laid all five on the floor and using two 2x4’s I attached the five larger boards together, flipped it over and placed it on top of 2-drawer filing cabinets on either end to store manuals, printouts, and other cool small stuff I wanted to hang on to. It was so sturdy I was able to put a bench vice at one end and a small drill press at the other end.

I am envious of all the gear you have! Good luck and happy New Year!!
