I quit smoking last November with the help of a nicotine vaporizer (aka a fancy/advanced version of an e-cigarette). As a result I have a bunch of small bottles of flavored nicotine liquids rolling around every time I opened my desk drawer. With some scrap red oak originally from Lowe’s, I made this tall-sided organizer to keep the little bottles in check. The slots are designed for specific sized bottles & the sides are tall enough so the bottle caps just barely poke out over the top, so they are protected from UV light & don’t accidentally get knocked over.
The sides are simple rabbets, the dividers are dados, the bottom has rabbeted edges & dados for the 3 dividers. I used Timbermate Red Oak to fill in the grain & finished with danish oil.
It’s nothing fancy, but I’m mostly a turner & don’t make many things with corners. It’s square, sits flat & does it’s job rather well.
