January is Junk Month! All this month I will be featuring storage and organization projects. This week, I built a canned food dispenser. It holds a lot of cans, but you can scale it back to whatever space you have. It works for most large and small cans.

If you would like to build this project, here is a set of SketchUp plans:

Nice little project, Steve!

Question: Do you buy all of your canned goods by the case?! That’s a lot of cans per section!

I take it that each section has the same can contents… otherwise, you’d be doing a lot of can rotations to get what you want… Maybe that’s what you do… Soup, for example… rotate cans until you get the type of soup you want?
