A quick add on for Workbench Organization

Having now lived with my new workbench for 8 months since we moved, there are things I’m happy with, and things I’m less happy with. One of the things I wasn’t happy with was my paint/glue storage. It was awkward, and my paint was in a constant risk of getting tipped over when I was using it or switching around jars.

At the Barrie-Allandale show last weekend, Osborn Models was there, and had a great, and affordable ($15) paint rack laser cut kit. It took maybe 10 minutes to put together (they say 5, I can see that, but I’m slow some days). There are lots of options out there, but a lot that I’ve seen are very specific to a single brand of paint or jar size. I don’t have limitless desk space, so this caught my eye as it would accommodate a wide range of paint and glue containers from different manufacturers together.

The parts are nicely cut, and the holes are designed to accommodate different sizes of jars with different openings. It’s a simple glue together with white glue kit. I found it needed a few minutes with some clamps while the glue bonded to get everything nicely aligned.

Test Fitting the pieces, and letting the glue cure with some clamps for a few minutes to make sure everything was nice and tight.

I’m quite pleased with the addition. It looks good, and organizes a bunch of supplies that stay on the workbench, and paints that come out of the drawer when I need to use them. It’s also got the potential with the jar holders that aren’t glued in for me to adjust the openings and patterns a bit to best fit my needs as I use them, which isn’t a bad thing either.
