My wife was cleaning out some items from her craft room. She had several of these plastic storage containers lie you might find in a fishing tackle box and asked if I could use them. I jumped at it. I then built this case from some scraps of plywood and mdf to put them in. I like the way that it works so well that I have already purchased several more of the little containers and am going to build a second cabinet for them.

Thanks,

Doc

At first glance I thought this was 6 feet tall.

Looks nice!

Now this sort of thing is always an improvement to any shop. I use some of those same type of plastic storage units myself and they work really well. You took some old plywood that was laying around, probably in your way, and have made something that is highly useful and even attractive. This organizing will pay off with many dividends in time saved. Great work!

Trust me Dennis. There is more than enough dust and debris in my shop. Between that and sharing space with the kids bicycles, I have to scrounge for every square inch I can find.

This photo and description was exactly what I was looking for! I needed something like this to hold my scrapbook containers – awesome idea and since dad can build anything, I asked for something like this and here is what he made. It holds 30 12×12 containers!!
