I made this drop down box in an effort to organize my medicine cabinet. The box is made from 1/2 ply with 1/8 hardboard bottom and dividers. It swings on a piano hinge and is held shut with two magnets that grab on to two screws. There is no need for a handle but I may add one later. It is finished with Minwax Gel Stain and Minwax Wipe-On Poly.

Excellent idea. Can hold a lot of bottles of my Viagra.
I could also see this in the kitchen to hold spices….....or more bottles of Viagra.

What kind of hinge did you use in there? I like the idea of using it as a spice rack.

Hello missingdigitworkshop

Nice! I made a spice rack like this for my boss. He hasn’t put it up yet so I don’t have a picture of that. Here’s where I got the idea from.
