Custom-built wooden rack in the workshop to hold 64 tubs of miscellaneous stuff, started as a project as Mythbusters Wall-O-Boxes Project

Some tubs contain sorted donated items and materials for projects and hacking - Telecoms and Network cables, PC parts, Corks, etc. and others contain sundries and other materials such as Glues and Sticky Tapes. The latter group is generally maintained stock.

Two coloured tapes on each tub correspond to similar tapes identifying rack rows and columns and try to maintain the position of each tub for easy location.

Tub Specification

The tubs are 24litre Wham Crystal Plastic Storage Boxes and were bought from The Range

Confused Classifications

  • Bungies and Webbing

At least one Tub contained items that probably should have been identified as 'workshop tools' kept for use within the space, but have been consumed and are no longer available. How can this be resolved?

Similarly, Hackspace and Team projects (Marble Run / Luthiers stuff) probably need better categorisation.

To Do

Some classification and labelling needs updating, and where multiple tubs are dedicated to the same contents consideration should be given to whether this storage is appropriate (PC parts for example).
