Under-Bench Paper Storage
I tend to use my workbench for just about any task that comes up - from layouts to glue-ups to finishing. But some of these jobs can get pretty messy. So to save on cleanup time and to keep my benchtop looking sharp, I came up with a quick and easy "coverup."

As you can see in the photo, I suspended a roll of heavy paper from the underside of the benchtop. A long dowel runs through the center of the roll and then hangs on two large hooks screwed into the benchtop. Now, whenever I need to protect the benchtop, I can easily unroll a length of paper and go to work. And when I'm done, the paper gets cut off and tossed in the trash.
