Greetings,

I was curious how you all store any metal in and around your shop that you keep for fabrication or just excess pieces that you keep for that "someday you might need them". I have a mixture of round stock, sheet metal, angle iron, flat iron, some scrap metal etc. Some pieces are large and others are smaller. I currently have some small pieces in a bucket and some longer stock hung on the wall on hooks. There has to be a better way...….

Looking for storage ideas and some pictures if you have them.

Thanks
Sean
