Over the weekend I decided to make a couple of shop projects. Details about the build over on my LJ’s blog.

All of this project was built from free lumber that I rescued from the burn pile.
Here are some pics.

The empty space.

Building the sides first.

1/2 Plywood for shelves

A spray paint and smaller can storage.

All in place.

Very nice organizational project. Great use of the space. Please don’t let any loose top cans spill on the planer.

If I cared what it looked like I probably would have done she dadoes. But I wanted something quick and easy. THis was the quickest route. LOL

Looking good Angie. There seems to be good ceiling height going by the pictures. Height is handy to conserve space. Well Done!!!!

I especially like the tilted spray can storage, don’t know how many times I have bought a new can only to discover an existing one hiding.

I had some cans of the spray paint (I like rattle can better lol) and all the small cans of finish in one of the doored cabinets. And some finish in the bottom drawer of the planer stand. This was my original storage place till I started getting bigger cans and more.
As I put them on the shelf I realized I had duplicates of a lot of the rattle cans. Plus I noticed I was out of two of the finishes I love. Spray lacquer being one of them.

You may see a lot of Minwax. But what you should be seeing is General Finishes. I don’t mine minwax stain but I prefer General Finishes and I only use the GF poly. Well… I say only… but I’m currently out of the satin.

Thanks for all the comments.

I love it , Angie!!!!!!!!!!!. You beat me to that horizontal rattle can storage!! I have 2 rows of cans welded together and need 36 more 14oz cans to finish it.

I love organizational projects! They sure help you work more efficiently in the shop!!
