Racks for Canned Goods
Stop Drawers from Falling Out
To keep a drawer in the cabinet where it belongs, drill a hole in the side of the box and make this stop with a dowel, a screw and a fender washer. It’s easy to make and to remove. Got a sticky drawer? Here’s how to loosen it.
Plastic Bag Holder
If your spices are jammed into a drawer with only the tops visible, this nifty rack that slips neatly into the drawer will solve the problem. And it only takes an hour to build. Make it with scraps of 1/4-in. and 1/2-in. plywood. Or build a two-tier drawer spice rack.
Don’t file away the manuals for your kitchen and bath fixtures. Instead, slip them into a locking plastic bag and hang the bag in the cabinet under the sink. They’ll always be right where you need them. Toss in paint samples and spare cabinet hardware too.
