I put mine in a 5 gallon bucket, but its a pain to dump it out to find something.

When I get rich Im gonna get a old rollaway just to put the junk in the drawers, should be eaiser to find stuff that way.

A clean work bench is the sign of an idle mind.

To finish the phrase...a cluttered mind!

My bench is 10x worse. For me that would be one time looking for a nut or bolt to fix something. Take your pic and add every power/hand tool you own plus harley engines, quad engines, spray paint cans, oil cans, etc. and you get an idea of what my bench looks like

I have 5 gallon buckets. But after a while, forget it, buy a box of bolts nuts washers. It's a pain. Unorganized mess. Cost me or guys more time to dig though 5gallons of odd ends stuff. If stuff isn't put away, tools ect it's a total waste of time not being organized.

Quite often Slapper...... I even find things I don't remember seeing before, Ah..... Your bench IS clean, Mine's 16ft long and half looks like yours.....

To finish...... "A clean workbench is a sign of" a not so good mechanic with no work due to non-returning customers.....
