Rectangular Chemical Cans Make Handy Storage Drawers
I cut the sides out of 1-gal. rectangular chemical cans to make handy storage drawers for tools and parts. Four rectangular instant coffee cans fit inside each chemical can to provide storage for smaller items. Eight plastic baby food containers can fit inside the can for even smaller items. Altoid mint tins can also be stacked neatly inside the cans/containers.
Iíve got them stacked on shelves above my workbench and I made a mobile work island that holds 20 of the chemical cans to hold nuts, bolts and washers.
After 40 years our mobile dishwasher quit working so I gutted it to use for storing battery-operated tools. (Kelly Best, Tampa, Fla.)
