Adam Savage’s One Day Builds: Custom Painting Shop Tools!

Today’s super quick build is an exercise in tool organization, but for Adam a new way about thinking about organization as well. As opposed to placing tools and materials in a place for ease of storage and access, Adam talks about rearranging a tool’s appearance to streamline its use. Taking his mill’s tightening wrench as the example, Adam cleans, masks, paints, and labels it in a way to mitigate visual ambiguity and optimize its place in his mental workflow.
