I had this stack of plastic organizers for months and I’ve never got to using the bottom ones because I have to remove the whole stack to get to them. Then the order gets messed up.

So, inspired by organization month, I decided to make this small cabinet for them from wood scraps. It’s not pretty, but at least now I can use them easily.

I’ve made a short “making of” video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tbfloUFsiBk

Nice project. I love these trays, but you’re right. If you have to stack them you can’t really use more than four or so. I’m adding this to my build list. Thanks!

I like it, Steve.

I did something similar when I reorganized my shop (garage) using those trays. They are so handy.

Now you need to attach a french cleat to the back and hang it on the wall.

You are right Mike, I need to hang this to free the little working surface I have. And a french cleat system on that back wall might be the best way to do it.

Have your say...
