For that reason, this little table top turned tool station in my photo studio got a slight revamp.
You may remember this when the vintage creamers held screws. They were cool! But dust got inside, and it was hard to tell what sized screws were inside.
Plus… they come with dust covers!
The rims were all screwed onto the jars first, then the covers were placed loose on top.
I found some on Amazon below, along with a few other cool things! (affiliate links)
The white helps illuminate the screws much more effectively!
So much so, I laid out a loose screw beside each jar so I could easily remember what went where.
p.s. I do have the proper sized screw measurements listed on the other side of the jars, but they mess me up. I like XS S M L XL better! 1 5/8 means NOTHING to me!
Please don’t even ask…
And if you take the jar with you, they aren’t that bulky.
Another fun addition was drilling holes into a shelf, to slip in the most commonly used drill bits. No more hunting!
All the twine found a home here too, as did the sanding sponges. A hole was drilled through them, then hung up.
This mini wall mounted drill and screws tool station with squishy jars is armed and ready for action!
And now I want one upstairs too.
Guess I’d better sit on a few more jars…
Do you have a small spot for indoor tools?
