The Rotating Benchtop Storage Unit
Here's a convenient way to efficiently organize your benchtop - without having to build any drawers.
This clever Lazy Susan-style rotating storage unit has been designed to use 18 inexpensive, readily available plastic drawers (in three different sizes) to organize hardware, small parts, some tools and even your sandpaper. And the best part of all is that it requires only about 20" x 20" of benchtop real estate !
1. Start by cutting all parts on the Bill of Materials List to size. We used 1/2" plywood for the main cabinet parts and 1/8" hardboard for the sandpaper shelves and dust panels.
Bill of Materials
