Build a rack to hold your test tubes full of supplies ready for Kitchen Science.

Step 1: The Idea

I loved the idea and presentation of the front cover of Make:'s Illustrated Guide to Home Chemistry Experiments.

The whole science-techno vibe is cool in a steampunk kinda way. Surely a test tube rack would be the most iconic image of a "science lab", and what better way to bring it into the kitchen than as a spice rack?

This gift was made for a relative, recently moved out of home, who is beginning to get into cooking.
Ah perfect I have been trying to find the test tubes in that size but most do not deliver to Ireland. I have been looking for test tubes and did not think "laboratory supplies" Thank you so much!!
I see your from and/or the United Kingdom. Is that right? In america, the hundreds and thousands are called sprinkles.
Incorrect!<br><br>I am from the sunny land known as Australia.

Ok, maybe is just a coincidence, but this thing, with the same use (kitchen seeds and spices, mostly) has been already for sale (quite expensive also) years ago in my country.
Yes, he mentioned that, but this is a lot cheaper, and you get the satisfaction of making it yourself :0)
What are "hundreds and thousands"?
I had the same question:<br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sprinkles">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sprinkles</a><br/>
