Gum Containers are Great for the Workshop

Store washers in a gum container. That way you can see what parts are inside the container at a glance. Plus the gum containers are very durable.

When you go to the big box stores in need of some washers, wood screws, drywall anchors, etc., those little plastic or cardboard boxes just don’t work well for storage once you open them.

So I took an empty gum container, removed the labels and filled it up with washers—except for one. I glued one washer to the top of the lid of the gum container. That way I can see what parts are inside the container at a glance. Plus the gum containers are very durable and look organized on shelves in my shop. — Jerry Bullock
