Storage Bonanza

About: A true Skrotnisse I am, teaching and making out of Scandinavia. My instructables will hopefully inspire some of you and if I'm lucky, improve my projects, offering tips and howto's. Thanks for sharing everyone!

Not only was marrying a Swede smart, but being introduced to crayfish made it awesome. Every August in Sweden they celebrate (ok , they celebrate more than just August) the season for crayfish, so if you go to Sweden and get invited to a Kräftskiva, go! As a bi-product of this party the crayfish packaging has turned out really valuable. Aside from the paper box they are stacke in a plastic container. I've collected these containers for years now and used the as trays in my workshop. But at a point they became to many to hav floating around so I made a drawer system with these plastic containers.

Ok, so you don't live in sweden, but maybe there is something you eat that comes in a container of some sort. Start collecting and make your own version. Would be great to see other options in the comments below.

Now moving on…

Teacher Notes

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Cheap Like No Other System I Have…

I've made it tall and it rooms 12 trays. There's a support screw in the middle. These trays can be a bit wobble so I've cut a slot on both sides and in the rear.

Step 2: For Moving Around

So, not to have 12 trays full of good stuff falling out when moving between projects I made an elastic rope in the front holding it all in place. Its fastened at the bottom and a quick release at the top with an adjustable fix. The handle on top is working fine for carrying.

Step 3: Meet My New Almost Free Friend…

With all the stuff I have laying around this is a super system for me. The possibility of taking the trays out and have the on the table for a specific project is great.

And soon I'll be able to make one more, just got to gather up a crowd for a few more Kräfskiva!

Puhh, first instructable published, a soft start I hope…
