this one is well known in DIY organizing tips.

wash and dry the Mason Jars.

drill three holes in the lid (use a piece of wood scrap to do that)

use 3/4 screws to fix the lid under the shelves

Step 2: Old Placemats to Stop Dust

I had some old placemats without use in my house and I wanted to reduce the dust in some of my workshop shelves.

I just fixed them with a stapler, and than I used this wood sticks to join them together. To fix the sticks in the placemats I used hellermann ties.

than I placed two small screw hooks (and left some of the stick out in both sides) to hold the placemats opened.

Step 3: Mason Jars With Hose Clamps

also a very well known thick in DIY organizing.

Just fix hose clamps in the wood with screws.

then I used a foam double faced tape on top of the screw to protect the glass so the screw didn't break the jar wile I was screwing the hose clamps.

then I placed the jars.

Step 4: CD Sheves

two different ways of using old CD shelves in a workshop.

Step 5: Screw Hooks With Kitchen Hooks

just screw hooks under the shelves and use kitchen hooks to hold stuff.

Step 6: Sheets Packages

if you use transparent packages to store stuff in the workshop always makes it easier to find them later.

I used sheets packages because they come with zippers.
