I built this simple unit to hold a load of the the really useful boxes to store some of my small consumables.

The lip at the top of the boxes runs along the bottom of the slots I routed in the vertical dividers.

I had the clear boxes already and I managed to get the red boxes really cheap from a local craft store.

I just need to print out some labels so I know what’s is which box.

Nice rack you’ve made, but those small plastic containers are awesome.

Very nice storage bin! What brand are your boxes? Can/Will you share a source?

They are made by a company called “Really useful boxes” I got them from HobbyCraft in the UK. They are a bit pricey normally but well worth it because they are so sturdy and hard wearing.

Great solution! Much better than the cheesy plastic drawers that never seem to fit in the slot well. I’m going to remember this idea :)

Amazon has them with the organizer. I like the wood organizer better though. Link

Thanks for sharing your home build. Looks great!
