These are bins to hold screws, hooks, etc. in my workshop.
I blogged about the making of them here at Lumberjocks.

Good idea. I think this is a project that a lot of LumberJocks are going to add to their shop.

Julie, I urgently need some of those. I will take 20 for a start, thanks…

You have been steadily improving your shop very well. Yeah, I have noticed. Good going and well done!

Those look great! I just can’t get past the fact that the cheap red versions of these are $0.60 at my local hardware store, so I have always stuck with them, but you version definitely looks a WHOLE lot nicer!

Hey Julie, that is a really cool design!!!. It looks like each bin can be taken down at any time and just reset under the flange on top and set on the support below. Nice job. Thanks for sharing!!!

Does a label slide in that front groove?
I was just thinking, they could be made various depths and widths for things that you might have a lot more of. It is kind of like using bigger jars for the screws you have more of!!

I built a set of these a while back. They are the handiest storage bins I have.
Great job on them Julie, I know you will enjoy them as much as I have.

Thanks for the comments.
Div – I really don’t want to make any more! (Although I have put things in mine and find they are mostly full already)
Jim – If you read my blog about it click here you will get more details. Yes, the dovetail slot in the front is to put a label in. There are two sizes, but could be more, as long as the backs are the same height, since each bin sits on the rail below and hooks into the rail above. The plans also show a handle so that you can hook up a few bins and take them to a project. Of course, like cleats, you can also make other accessories to hang on the rails.

Nice job Julie. I have manufactured bins and they are always full of dust. I like yours and I may copy yours and hinge a piece of clear plexi over each one.

Have your say...
