    I guess so, because it's made out of cardboard!

    Looking good! I had the same idea a few years ago. I used scrap plywood and 2” pvc pipes cut at angles on the bottom so the tube openings would face me. Makes it easier for me to put tools in them. Used hot glue to attach the pvc to the plywood.
