It occurred to me, many of us have a big project on our hands in reorganizing our spaces to accommodate our new lasers.
In reviewing how mine has evolved over the years and what has worked really well for me, I came up with something I wanted to share. Then it dawned on me, just like the Show and Tell thread - there is a massive amount of experience gathered here that would be good thread fodder for lessons learned, and here we are.
The best thing I ever did for my work area is put up slat wall. If you are in a position to do that and don’t, you miss out on the best wall storage system going IMO.
Standard 4’x 8’ sufficiently screwed to every stud it spans, it can hold amazing weight. Hardware for it is a little pricey, so I bang out my own. 1/8 x 1/2 steel strap.
I hardly have any weight on it, compared to what it can take.
I have 24 feet of it, and I love every inch.
From around $70. up to really fancy with aluminum inserts. $$!
Now, take this thread anywhere you want to.
Favorite tool - I know you have tons of ;em.
process - perhaps something you stumbled on or a problem you managed to solve - or a horrible warning. (I have a bucket of those, with the scars to prove it!)
organization - like my example.
material - Found something new, or a source?
or just talk among yourselves!
