Picture of Pill bottle storage rack
Recycle used pill bottles into something you can use in your workshop  I have lots of old prescription pill bottles that I use for small parts, but they haven't been organized well until now. Here is how I built a pill bottle storage rack that will hold 22 pill bottles to store small parts.  I built it at TechShop in Round Rock, TX.

Step 1: Create file and send to laser

I used CorelDRAW on a TechShop computer to create an image that is 24" long by 3.5" wide (the size of the boards I got from Lowe's) with 11 evenly spaced 1.5 " diameter circles.  I added the date and other information so I'll know when I made this.  I wanted to see how the laser engraved the text as well as how it cut the holes.

I used 0.5" thick pine from Lowe's for the two rows of my Pill bottle storage rack. The Trotec laser made 6 passes in order to cut out the holes for the pill bottles.

this isn't a bad idea in fact I think it's brilliant since my step father's hand shakes and he knocks all his pill bottles over trying to grab just one. But what about not have it a tilt so you can see the labels? or what do you do about the fatter bottles? I know I'm being to picky..sorry :)

Regarding seeing the labels, I think you can, it is just the photos were taken at an angle and you can't see the labels from that view. Yet I agree that adjustable tilt would be a nice feature.I agree with you that an assortment of holes would work great. Although it's a little hard to anticipate what size bottles the pharmacist is filling on your next refill. LEDs would be useful because the horizontal wood pieces would cast a shadow over the labels under overhead lighting. The LED strips are so cheap nowadays.

Very nice idea! I can see this having lots of uses :) You should enter this into the Holiday Gifts Contest!

I have nine scripts this will be great, thinking outside the box. Gotta love it
Thanks for this wonderful idea! This will make it a lot easier to keep track of my pills, and when to order again.
