I have a high ceiling and like to hang things overhead, out of the way. In the kitchen, these overhead see-through fan housing baskets are ideal for keeping an eye on food products.
People throw away electric fans all the time. I rescued these two fan housing halves from my neighbor's trash.
You can make single baskets that hang with wire from an overhead hook, or you can hang multiple baskets in series, like this double basket design.
Step 1: Materials
You will need the fan housing, some galvanized tie wire, a pair of pliers, and a hook made of 1/4 inch iron rebar, or some other suitable material.
The wires are attached to the hook, and the four free ends dangle down to hold the baskets.
I bend the rebar either with pliers, or with a 2-pin bending jig.
