Storing small parts in glass jars

Storing small parts in glass jars

Little by little you collect little pieces in the workshop that you don’t know how to store. I’m referring to all those screws, nails, nuts, washers, drill bits, hinges, locks … that seem to clutter up, blend in and hide by themselves. Although we try to maintain order and keep everything well stored in plastic containers, when we use something we hardly put it in the same place we had it. Another is to look for what we need beforehand, opening small plastic boxes, cases, briefcases… until we find it under who knows what or at the bottom of where.

Strolling through the internet I found a curious idea that seems quite useful: to store the pieces that we use the most in glass jars, which being perfectly transparent you can clearly see what’s inside.

The idea is not to have glass jars stacked on shelves, but to screw the metal lid to the underside of the shelf board and have them hanging. In this way we avoid that they are loose peeling with everything we put around them on the shelf and as their place will always be accessible it will be easy to leave them in place. The worst thing about the idea: the risk of breakage (keep children away). I hope I don’t break any of them by hitting them with a wooden bar. If so, I will post the photo.

Glass jars can be used for many DIY tasks. Have you already seen how to make a lamp out of glass jars?
