Imagine working on a project and having all the tools and parts you need right there. That's what you strive for when you storing and organizing your tool collection. Your tool storage equipment should provide you with these three important elements: Security from theft and loss. Protection from damage. Organization that allows for easy, fast access and mobility.
To store project plans, reference materials and magazine clippings, keep at least one two-drawer file cabinet in your workshop. You may be able to tuck them under existing workbenches. Or, if you will be building new workbenches, design them to accommodate the file-drawer cabinets.
