   i'll be busy saturday, sunday, and monday. i may be 
able to put in a little time tuesday before 3 PM, it 
looks like i'll be able to put in time wednesday and 
thursday during the daytime and friday before 3 PM. 

   my pet "in-the-shop" interest is screws and such: 
some easy to get to place where various screws, nails, 
other fasteners (anchor and molly bolts), and 
adhesives live. 
   knowing where that place is or should be is the 
main thing. i don't want to invest a bunch of time 
setting things up to discover that someone else 
decides that's where something else should be. 

   the way i organize such, i have a place for sheet 
metal and wood screws, a place for machine screws 
and nuts and bolts, a place for nails, a place for 
adhesives, a place for general hooks and braces, a 
"hell box" for similar ]but different, and a found-it 
box for anything and everything i find lying around 
after doing something.  
   in each place i have sub-places for common sizes 
and miscellaneous, e.g. common sizes of panheads and 
a container of odd-sized panheads. common sizes i 
leave in their marked boxes. miscellany i put in a 
jar or cardboard box or other single container. 
   any screws, nails, or what-not i find lying around 
i put in the found-it container. once in a while i 
dump the found-it container and sort and distribute 
to proper places. 
   i'm proposing such a scheme. 

   whatever the scheme, after it's implemented, i 
can add a bunch of various screws that are currently 
in the storage closet across the way.
