Cool Idea! Thanks.

Glad to see you didn’t but the plastic bins. Yours are so much nicer.

Looks awesome!

they are pretty fun to make, you setup your equipment and cut all of the parts together. There are a few things I learned from this project, 1st cut twice the amount you think you will need, don’t think about it just do it, and if you don’t beleve me look at the photo and see how much empty space I have left. 2nd the directions say to nail the parts together, I say glue and brad nails, Nailing these small parts sucks. and 3rd build the assembly jig, it will save you a ton of time. The hardest part was cutting out all of the parts. deffinatly worth the time, a great place to store stuff you don’t use all that much. build some with the deviders and some with out, you will use both. and 4th have fun, you will get a chance do do many things with your power tools you may have not done before, I know I did.

Great idea. Glad you had fun doing it. That is what this hobby is all about. I really like this idea. If I only had a blank spot in the shop to put it. haha

Keep up the inovative ideas.

I like it! And the best thing about the bins is that the wood absorbs moisture therefore the hardware won`t rust…MC

Randy, you mentioned an assembly jig so I’m guessing this was an article in a magazine/book is this something you could share? I really like the project, a reverse French cleat system to make them removable is very cleaver. Thanks for sharing, Pat

Hi Pat, I had a mag sent to me in the mail a few years back called “small shop solutions” , the plans were from it. also ?shop notes vol 2. I think you can still get it from their site, also plans now, heres the link http://plansnow.com/wallbins.html Good luck, they are fun to build, and a worth while project. Randy
