I unfortunately don't have pictures of the stuff in his shop but will pass along some ideas. When I do have some of these implemented into my shop, I'll have to get some pictures posted.
The first is aerosol cans (paint, WD40, etc.) holders. The wife's grandfather took some PVC pipe that had a 2 1/2 inch inside diameter. From this, he cut the PVC into 1 1/2 inch rings. From these 1 1/2 inch rings, he then cut out about 2 1/2 inches cut out, so it basically was in the shape of the letter "C". With the side that had the 2 1/2 inches cut out facing you, he had ran a screw into the back of it and into the outside of a cabinet door (you can choose to put them in other spots that suit you). Now that the "C" shaped rings are mounted to something, all ya have to do is slide the aerosol can in and out as they get used.
Another is a homemade version of the roller stands that you can buy at hardware store. The base is 3/4 inch plywood cut to a 12"X12" square. This will be your base that sits on the floor. Then there was a 2X2 coming up 30" from the center of the base (this 30" can be changed, depending on your needs). A 2X4 cut into 2 pieces of 4" X 4" squares are cut diagnal into triagle which are used as supports for the 2X2 screwed to the plywood platform. With a 15" section of another 2X2, 13" is cut down to a 2" X 1" demension while leaving 2" at one end as 2"X2". In the 13" part of this, there is a slot cut. At this time, 2 bolts about 5" long are put into the 30" piece coming up from the base. Then the 15" piece goes on with the bolts going through the slots. Then put a washer and wing nut on each bolt. With the slot and wing nut, this 15" piece can then be adjusted higher/lower to the users desire. At the top of the 15" piece (which will be the 2" X 2" end), center and attach the 2" X 1" piece previously cut out of the 15" piece. A roller was purchased from a hardware store and attached to the 2" X 1" piece.
Again, I unfortunately don't have pics at this time, but as I get these ideas implemented, I'll get some taken and posted.
