Dream craft organization

I find the biggest obstacle to being a crafter is organizing and keeping all my supplies neatly in one place. I saw this wonderful "Work Box" at Home Companion Magazine. Closed, it looks like an attractive 3 x 3 x 6 foot armoire. Open, it folds out to nine feet of shelves holding 83 slide out flexible canvas boxes, has 20 removable Velcro bags for small item storage, and a fold down table work space.

Watch the inventor's video of how it works here.

I like how so much storage is made so compact, and how it could be displayed in any room of a house. The price tag is reflective of all the craftsmanship that goes into making it, and I imagine shipping would be pricey, too, but this is a serious crafter's dream item!

I have the same crafting obstacle issue you write about. My husband and I have been discussing options to get this under control so I can feel less overwhelmed. He wants to build me a cabinet and worktop. I just don't know what I want yet. The cabinet you shared is a grand idea and I'm going to show him your post about this when he gets home from work tonight.

It would be wonderful if your husband could make a cabinet like this accordung to your specifications, June! I'd love to see how it turns out so please post pictures when he makes it.
