Since moving into a new house, my junk drawer has needed some attention. I created 2 custom drawer organizers to hold my various things, and got rid of everything else! Most things got a custom-sized compartment, while others sit in generic spot. Designed using make-a-box and Illustrator using draftboard. Now to tackle the battery drawer…
Nice. Nice. Very nice.
Remember you need 15 pieces of flair minimum!
Love it! Although you do lose a bit of the excitement now that the scissors don’t get twisted and caught preventing the drawer from opening!
That makes my inner organizer very happy!
Did you use make-a-box to set up your partitions too, or did you do that in Illustrator? Just wondering if I am missing a setting option.
I did that manually in illustrator.
That looks amazing! I’d have to label each compartment just so I would remember what went in there, otherwise mine wouldn’t look any different than the unorganized drawer! Well done!
That’s about how i would feel, except i think i would be more caught up in trying to decide where i wanted each item to be in the drawer, so id probably never even finish the file
So pretty and now clean looking
Very inspiring! Great job.
I decided to organize the loose misc. hardware that had been collected across the years after a 3 level compartmentalized swivel organizer went on sale at Harbor Freight. “Finally get it out of the bucket and organize it all”.
My reasoning didn’t go any further than “Wow, that’s cheap, and would fit perfectly in the bench corner!”
"Machine screw, washer, wood screw, nut… repeat. Yeah. Didn’t think that all the way through, probably took me 2 days to filter it all, but like your solution, worth the effort.
I very much like the design, but find organization like that too restrictive.
I’m the “rummage around in the big drawer of stuff” kind of guy.
Can you come do this for my home? I will be the same as @CMadok - I will get stuck trying to decide what to put where. That’s why I have yet to make any drawer organizers LOL I have been intending to for probably 2 years. lol
There’s always a price, but in this case, probably not cost effective. It took waay longer than I planned. I just provide the inspiration.
I need this for my entire house! but the passthrough won’t allow 1/2" plywood It would probably need wider than 20" as well.
Anyway, I need to deconstruct the pile of junk around the WiFi before the Glowforge will work again. I really hope Spectrum has not decided that the 2.4 mhz option is no longer a necessary thing
Hell drawer to heaven drawer! I need to do this as well!
I have 19 devices on my home network. Only 3 - my laptop, my phone, and my FireTV use 5GHz. Nothing else is capable.
Yep, here we are stuck in the transition between standards. Evolution is a thing, driven by the arrow of time. I reflect on the speed of media storage standards, I’ve witnessed the change all the way from reel-to-reel to streaming. I lived in a time computer numeric control of a tool was science fiction.
What’s next…? AI, that’s what.
If I had that in my junk drawer, it would start off organized but quickly just end up with me throwing stuff in it. I suck at staying organized. Chaos fits me.
