Small Parts Carousel

Put a spin on storing shop necessities.

By Jeff Timm

Here's a way to store all that indispensable small stuff that clutters your workshop. Based on a rotating bolt cabinet from an old-fashioned hardware store, this re-design rotates on inverted swivel casters. Easy to build, because there’s no complicated joinery, it's just your basic shop storage miracle.

Assembly is easy, because everything is screwed and glued. Stagger the shelves and fasten them to the two narrow uprights. Then fasten these assemblies to the wide upright.
