Garage Organization

Ryobi Garage Door Opener

So this thing just dropped from Ryobi and from the sounds of it, it’s pretty damned cool. Essentially it’s a 2hp garage door opener that becomes a sort of HUB for your garage. Through a host of modular accessories, you can add a fan, more lights, a cord reel, and even a bluetooth speaker. Admittedly, some of this stuff is just silly but I really admire the innovation of thought here from a company that I’ve never really given much thought too. In my opinion, this could grow into a nice little cottage industry.

Anyway, details from Ryobi here. And yeah, Home Depot is already selling them.

Editor’s Note: This isn’t a review… In fact, I’ve never even seen one of these units. I just got a press release for the thing in my inbox and thought I would feature it.

The Pliersrack II

The idea of having your tools at hand rather than in a drawer is enticing, but things like pliers often don’t work all that well in a tool board environment, right? Well… These folks sent me an email the other day and they think they just might have a solution – for pliers at least.

Organizing 1/4″ Bits

I had no good way of organizing 1/4″ bits… and I seemingly had hundreds of them in varying degrees of usability. So, google to the rescue… I found the above from Lee Valley. It’s designed and sold as a tool box organizer that can hold anything from sockets to screwdrivers (with little plastic clips), but screw all that noise – I just bought the board and it works great for bit storage (450 of them).

Details here.

The Lista Storage Wall

So the “organization” part of my shop build has taken way longer than I ever expected. Once the joint was up and pseudo operational, I had a bunch of projects to tend to before I could really get down to making a place for everything. Which, honestly, has turned out to be a good thing. Working on projects in the shop while it was an organizational mess gave me a better understanding of what should go where.

EPPCO Tool Box Liner

So I’m finally finished lining all of the drawers in my Lista boxes… I’ve said this before, but when I was done I felt as though I had just finished carpeting a two-bedroom apartment. So. Many. Drawers.
