I saw this parts organization holder in an issue of Family Handyman, however I changed it to hold 8 bins rather than 6. The only tricky part is cleaning out the empty oil bottles. My solution is to first drain the contents for a day or so, then mark the cut line using the tote as a guide. I use scissors to cut on the line and then I soak the bins is a 5 gal bucket with soapy water for and hour or so. I scrub the lable off and dry the inside and they are okay for nuts and bolts. 1/2 inch baltic birch or any 1/2 in plywood scraps will do and you have a neat gift for someone when you can’t think of something. I have friends at an auto repair shop that save me the empty bottles and I keep one or two completed totes around all the time.
