Metal storage

#1
I'm trying to get my shop a little better organized and decided I needed to have better storage for random small pieces of metal. Most of my pieces are less than 24" and it turns out that I had that much space under the bench the lathe sits on. I decided to use some cheap 4 inch PVC pipe from the home centre to make dividers or cubbies. Here is the result:

The shelf just rests on top of the 2 pvc pipe pieces. Hopefully I'm not overloading them. Very small pieces are in the cardboard box below. A few pieces that are too long for the available space are standing in a pail just off to the right.

Craig, very nice. But that level of professional neatness is getting dangerously close to having you stripped of your hobby status . ;)
