Reusing Plastic Containers in the Workshop

By: Joe Truini

Rather than recycle plastic containers, I’ve decided to start reusing them in the workshop for extra storage.

I start by marking a cut line around the jug. Cut off the top of the jug, including the handle. Drill a hole in the tab, and hang it anywhere in the workshop. Now I don’t have to go searching for things I use often.
