Storing Flammables

Maybe it's just me but i like to have a special spot for the fumey flammables. Got so many gas cans, thinner rags, paint brushes etc, that i selected a spot away from the house, garage and woodshed (by the river) & made a brick "stuccoed stump" about 4 feet across, flopped a split metal lid on it and they all live there, metal or plastic, good bad or empty.

It soon turned into the yard's gas station so carries a grease gun, chain lube and 2-cycle oil too. When we lived in town, i'd store that stuff in a metal cabinet by the back fence. I've seen spontaneous combustion from a rag once and next time i wanna be further away. :)
