This summer I am going to be disassembling the engine in my pick up truck and have been trying to get my garage organized so the project goes a little smoother. After looking at the shelves where I store my chemicals, cleaners, paints, and lubricants I was exceedingly dissatisfied with it. I looked around at various retailers for an affordable storage solution and was not locating anything worth purchasing so I decided to build my own. Hopefully you enjoy them!
Step 1: The problem
As a do-it-yourself type of person I have accumulated a rather large variety of spray paint, lubricants, cleaners, and other products for use around the garage and house. The problem is that most standard shelves are 12-16" deep and most cans are only 3". While you can store lots of cans on a single shelf it can be rather difficult to locate a specific can quickly.
