Screw and Nail Organizer
Great organizer for small spaces! Holds sixteen jars in a 15 inch space! My husband's original storage container.
Total Time: 4 hours
- 4 by 4 inch wood post, cut 14 inches long
- 16 half pint canning jars
- 16 canning jar rings
- small nails
- screw driver
- mitre saw
- drill press
- hand power drill
- 1 by 4 inch wood, cut as follows: two sides 14 " long, one back 14 1/2" long, one front that is 16" long
- 2 1/4 inch bolts
- socket wrench
- 2 1/4 inch nuts
- nail punch
- 2 3/8 inch screw bolts
- After 1 by 4 inch wood is cut into given lengths, screw the frame together. First screw the front (16 inch piece) to the two sides and then screw the two sides to the back (14 1/2 inch piece). Note: always pre-drill to prevent cracking. Drill a 1/4 hole in the center of the sides. Center should be from left to right and top to bottom.
- Mark the center on each end of the 4 x 4 inch wood. Also, mark where the rings will be nailed to the 4 x 4 so that each lid is spaced approximately 1/2 inch. Drill a 1/4 inch hole on both ends of the 4 x4. Attach 4x4 by using a long 1/4 inch bolt and nut. Place the nut between the side and end of the 4x4. Use a wrench to hold the nut as you tighten the bolt the end of the bolt will go into the end of the 4/4. The 4x4 should freely rotate.
- Drill 5 small holes in all 16 rings. Attach rings with small nails. You will want to use a nail punch to prevent damaging the lid when attaching the lids. This is the most time consuming part.
- Mount the frame to the wall using two 3/8 inch screw bolts that can be used to tighten with a socket wrench to the back of the frame.
- Screw the jars onto the rings and the project should be complete.
