Hi Van Dell!!
you could color code the sizes using model paints. Put up a chart
showing the color codes. A dot of hunter green might be 1/2", a dot of
orange might mean 5/8", etc. If you use the tools a lot, then maybe
you want to put a layer of acrylic on it, either spray on or something
like clear nail polish.

SISU! (Finnish--There is no single word in English that encompasses
all that sisu means, but it combines the following ideas: guts, pep,
determination, stubbornness, perseverance, hardiness, stamina, go, do,
nerve, spunk, pluck, and grit. It's like "Just Do It!"& "Go for It!")
