This project is simple and can really help you keep your home in order. If you have some old glass jars ready for the recycling bin, go ahead and pull them out. You'll also need a 2-by-4-inch piece of wood and a handful of wood screws. Take the lids off of each jar and screw them into center of the wood board, spaced a few inches apart. Then mount that piece of wood on the underside of a shelf in your wood shop that has some clearance beneath it. Fill the jars with whatever you want to -- mixed screws and nails, nuts and bolts, washers, or anything else that can fit. Then, all you have to do is screw the jar into the mounted lid
