I got carried away again when I saw a steam cleaner on special at our local supermarket. I had one of these a few years ago but it only lasted a year or two. This new one is supposed to be “new and improved”and it has lots of attachments most of which I will likely never use.
I hate trying to keep these things in the original box – the hassle of getting out the parts you need is so annoying
that you never want to use the damn thing and my wife hates them even more.
It is useful however for keeping mold of the tiles and cleaning the wooden floors from time to time and even killing mites in bedding.
I needed to make a simple storage solution that would be convenient and keep all the parts together but readily accessible.
This was what I have come up with and i think the idea can be used for quite a lot of storage problems in the house and workshop
It is made from 3/4”, 1/2”and 1/4”cheap ply and uses only butt joints with pinned glue fixation and a few strategically placed screws.
The lettering was done using a wood burner pyrography tool after tracing around some cheap cardboard cutout letters from a craft shop.
It is finished with one coat of sanding sealer and two coats of polyurethane.
I think is solves the problem and the stack-ability allows the addition of any number of boxes of similar base size but variable height as required.
Of cause dividers could be added to the interior if needed.
