Vertical Pull Out Paint Storage Idea

  • Published on Dec 30, 2018
  • I'm fed up with having a messy paint and finishes storage area. It's a real pain to find the spray paint i won't, and getting things out without knocking things over is another issue. So I have made my self this vertical pull out drawer, it holds spray paint on one side, and finishes and rolls of tape on the other side.
    I made it from 15mm plywood I salvaged from a packaging create at work. So the project hasn't cost me anything, except the drawer slides, and it also helps to keep things tidy and free up so much needed space in my cabinet.

    What editing software do you use mate? and is it free? And can I use on my old school computers? As thinking of doing RU-clip videos.

      😂😂 well I'm from Suffolk so to me that sounds like a proper Suffolk accent. I am looking into doing RU-clip videos. So you might notice the similarities in the accents. 😂😂 happy new year bud .

    James how u getting on with that track saw ? Come down in price here so thinking of getting one

    • James' Man Cave

      That's worth buying at that price. It doesn't come with any track clamps, but you can buy a Scheppach clamp kit that fits this. Same to you buddy

      Well, as a tool for cutting, and leaving a nice cut it works great. I've had a few minor set up issues whilst getting it settled on the track. I don't think the one connecting bar for the tracks is good enough, so would need another. As you can see, everything I cut was straight and with in 0.5mm of what I wanted. It proclaims to have upto 90% dust collection, that figure is a bit ambitious. I think I paid £70 for it, so I'm certainly not expecting it to complete with the more expensive brands. But for the price, if you want a track saw then you can't go far wrong with this one.

    Would a back be an idea, to stop items falling out the back while opening, still nice though

    • James' Man Cave

      I had originally cut a couple of small strips to Brad nail on to the back, about half way up each shelf area. But the drawer slides I used, prevent me from opening it to quick, and I did try to make something fall out but they just wouldn't go! 🤨
