Here is my little corner workstation. You can still see the MDF board counter tops. We were testing it to see if it fit. It will be routed and then painted white.
My storage here is some very inexpensive (5.99) rods from Factory 2 you. They are the smallest ones they make an they are NOT extended. I wanted both rods to be inside one another for full support under the weight of the punches. If you look closely I also mounted the brackets in about 4.25" from the edge of the rod. This too was to help evenly support the weight of the punches. Why 4.25" Well, the width of two of the Martha Stewart punches is 4" so I gave them a .25" room between each other. Here I have room to grow and I might go back and get a third rod for six bucks just to have another one for more growth.
The red bowl houses all my little punches and the CM ones won't work on the rods So they are stacked here until I figure something out.
