Larger units usually comprise of several compartments and offer an all-in-one solution for extreme hobbyists or small businesses. These pieces are better suited to dedicated rooms or a garage with enough work space. Cube organizers work well for those who need extra compartments and they fit snugly against most walls.
Store fabric bins or plastic containers in the slots to keep supplies separated. Use pegboards to store supplies scissors, rulers and pliers.
Keep Small Materials Contained with Lids
