Introduction: 2L Bottle Multi-use Container

While cutting up 2L bottles for hydroponics planters, I found that they are of slightly different diameters and Pepsi bottles slide inside Coke bottles, when the ends are cut off. The flares at each end of the Pepsi bottle act as a slide "limit", but also give strength to the "structure".

The uses are many and the resulting containers are both reusable and disposable.

Step 1: What You Need

1 ea 2L Pepsi bottle
1 ea 2L Coke bottle or similar.
1 ea Utility Knife

Step 2: What You Do

1. Cut Pepsi and Coke bottles in half as shown.
2. Fit halves together as desired, depending on end function, as shown.

Uses - Terrarium, food storage/protection, yarn holder, hamster wheel (drill air holes), picnic/camping storage, bread box, bug cage, lunch box, etc .....

Thanks. Since making this I've discovered, totally by mistake of course, that some Pepsi bottles slide inside each other as well allowing you to use the flanges as a "lock" that actually POPS into place.... with careful trimming of course.

 I would love to see a picture of that!

I'll try to remember to get the camera before I make the fatal cut too far.

 Great idea! Simple, elegant, and cool-looking. I especially love the space-age styling of the two bottoms combined.
 On the two-bottom combo, I could see drilling a hole through the center of the top bottom and inserting a drawer pull, to make it more decorative and easier to open. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks.

Just today I was using this idea for something else and thought of cutting windows into each bottle that can be opened or sealed shut by turning the bottles.

lol dude thats sick im so doin that

Thanks. I also made a bellows for a fire. It works great.
