There are probably enough tools and supplies for your crafting specialty to fill five craft rooms -- and an entire basement. Organizing tools, especially those with a countertop or desktop footprint can be a tough task. Printers, scanners, sewing machines, sergers, template cutters...the list of essential equipment goes on and on.

How do you configure your craft room to make accessing and using your tools more convenient and intuitive? We have a great idea: Use a huge lazy Susan or two (or three) built into a cabinet or counter. It'll rotate to bring the equipment to you. Some kitchens have this kind of storage for small appliances, pots and pans. We also love the idea of half-moon pivoting shelves. You can adapt the concept to make tool time fast and effortless.
