Made this for the shop to hold stain & finish materials. I slanted a couple of shelves to save space and store cans of spray paint & cleaner. Keeps me from knocking them off the shelf all the time.

Mise en Place, from the French.
Definition: This phrase means having a place for everything and having everything organized before you begin cooking.

With this shelf you will really be cookin’ when it comes to Finishing!!!

Neat, organized and space saving!! I like the angle for the “rattle cans” to save vertical space.

Nice, I will need to steal that design, I built a paint cabinet, link below, but it looks like I need to have this for finishing items

I sort of regret spending my $40 on a metal cabinet. Why do most industrial places require having a “fire cabinet” to enclose all these? You don’t seem to have any issues leaving them out in the open? My problem with the metal cabinet is that stuff gets stuck in the back, requiring me to move stuff out of the way just to get at it. Sort of silly.
