I've got cupboards stashed with tools that organise nicely and also a tool chest but the tools in the peg board are the typical tools I reach for. I add to my tools as I need them :)

I can hardly see the floor in my workshop, let alone the worktops. (clap)

(wait) Are you sure you didn't drag everything out into the garden to take these pictures for us.? :?

I've had some new ones arrive which I plan to put in tomorrow.

I couldnt tell you what these are as they were a damaged freebie from the builders merchant. I don't know what was broken about them either.

I'm gonna put up 2x 1200x300 LED light panels with 4000lm each. Cost less than £80 for the pair from LED hut

I've always struggled with neatly storing mastic bottles so made this solution from 50mm gutter downpipe and small angle brackets. Cost me about £8.

Very smart solution.
You must use your mastic quite a lot; I tend to find that mine has usually gone off when I retrieve it from my "mastic draw". :(

Yeah we use a LOT! Or at least since moving in anyway. Hopefully not going to use so much from now on.

We always swap nozzles when we finish one bottle and move onto the next for 2 reasons. We gain spare nozzles for when they block up and we need a replacement, and also because going for new nozzles every time means you waste a nozzle full of product.
