This is my cutting counter.

I love my counter tool storage system as it keeps everything organized, handy and better yet, it only cost me $18.00.(And it turns too!) You can make one too!
First, get yourself a turn table. Mine is old, well used and leftover from my scrapbooking days.
Next, find a container you want to use that will fit on top of your turn table. I found mine at a JoAnn's on clearance in the picnic isle for $5.00. It fits perfectly on the turntable with about a two inch overhang around.
To create this, I visited my local $1.00 store and cruised the glass isle where
I found an ample assortment of jars and glasses.
I use the jars to store my colored pencils for sketching, embellishments for quilts and my go to thread for piecing.
Jars also hold my nail file boards used for creating applique templates and scissors for cutting everything but fabric.
And don't forget glasses! They are perfect for holding sharpies, pencils, highlighters, marking pencils, rulers, and other misc. tools as seen here:
So there ya have it! A cutting counter storage assembly that keeps everything at hands reach and doesn't break the bank!
I hope I've inspired ya to be creative and thrifty in your organizing!
