Having owned a '68 VW Beetle for many years now, the main problem I encounter is storage., or rather the lack of it!!

The glove box is great, unless you keep your stereo in it, the wire rack thingies are great, but having had one, you do find that stuff slides out of the gaps and the drinks holder just isn't big enough..

And I just don't have a 3D printer or a Laser Cutter or anything high tech. I have my imagination and a Bandsaw.

Step 1: DRAWINGS:

I start by sketching out exactly what I want from the storage box and thinking what I want it to hold.

Drinks, phone, sunglasses, show tickets, change, chewing gum, sweets, bits and bobs.

The storage box is the picture on the left, the other one is an idea to fit in the ashtray compartment.
<p>Great work! Storage is always an issue everywhere you go, be it at home or even in your vehicle. I guess with some creativity juices and expertise in woodworking, you can maximize all the space you can find and utilize it to your own advantage following your storage needs.</p>

Thanks Scubabubba, it is sooo usefull, those wire ones are just awful. Yes I agree with the VW logo, it does make it. Appreciate your comments.
<p>We're restoring a '67, this will be a great improvement over the wire basket thingy. I especially like the VW logo, that really makes it!</p>
Hi, I shall hunt them down and add them to the instructable unfiltered :-)
Thanks for sharing, do you have any un-filtered photos? It's a little hard to make out your design plans.
Pleasure, thanks for the kind comment.
I really like the look of that, thanks for sharing
