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.
