Hardware Strorage

I was tired of my misc hardware hanging out on my workbench, so I made a hardware caddy to help keep it organized.

I was given four big cut offs of 1/2” MDF so that’s what I made it from. To make the bins removable I used the french cleat system.

Thanks for looking!

This design is nice. More practical than just the plastic bins. Was interested in this project cause I just organized my hardware with some hardware bins from lowes remodel.

Also, as you probably already know, you seriously need a dust collector. Especially when working with MDF. Formaldehyde + lungs = bad
