To make your home workshop more functional and organized:

  • Create a dust collection system by running a wet/dry vacuum hose behind the workbench with adapters available to attach to power tools for easy cleanup.
  • Organize tools in drawers by type, with one drawer for screwdrivers and another for drill bits.
  • Install magnetic strips on the wall behind your workbench for easy access to often-used hand tools.
  • Attach self-adhesive hooks to stationary tools and walls to keep tools and safety equipment handy at all times.
