Every shop needs storage bins for all those small parts that we have, can’t find, go to the store and buy the small part, only to find that part a month later in the shop somewhere. So I was thumbing through my ShopNotes mag and found this project. Seemed like a great idea, make some bins and store all those parts.
Well halfway and 2 weeks through this project I was wondering what came into my mind???? I could have ordered bins from HF and be making some fine furniture (Ha-ha). Seriously, this project required a lot of cuts but once I got the hang of cutting the pieces and setting it up in an assembly line fashion it wasn’t that bad. The entire project was written superbly and everything was explained very well. Of course, after it was all done, I am glad I did it. I have a nice storage set-up, I can always expand with the same drawers and the cost is very low.
The project consist of 2 sizes of storage bins with the option of dividing the longer bins in half. Their is also an option to make a storage bin carrier and a tape dispenser. I made all of the options plus an extra tape dispenser. This project took me so long cuz I only spend about 1 -2 hours a day working in my shop. Assembly was easy, using the assembly template shown in one of my pics. I haven’t made the labels for the bins yet, I am waiting until I get the parts situated the way I want them. Hope ya’ll like the project.
