How to build a very simple wall organizer using one single sheet of plywood and 48 plastic bins. I am building my workshop and I needed to add storage for my small parts. Quick and easy to build, this will organize my workshop. Im using small plastic bins : 6"1/4 wide, 3"3/4 high, 7"1/2 depth.
Step 1: Material :
For this project, you will need :
- 1 full plywood sheet (48"x96") or in my case i had some leftover plywood. (5/8 Thick)
- Wood Glue
- Nails or Screws ( or both for stronger build )
- Paint ( I used leftover wall paint )
18GA air Nailer
Drill or Impact Driver
Step 2: Cutting PLAN
Here is the cutting plan for all 15 pcs.
Step 3: Cutting the Pieces
Im using my table saw and my miter saw to cut all the 15 pcs.
13X : 24"3/4 x 7"1/2 (629mm x 178mm)
2x : 62"1/8 x 7"1/2 (1578mm x 178mm)
Once it's done, im sanding all pieces before assembling.
Step 4: Assembling Parts
Im using two 4"½ spacers to make sure i have the same distance between shelves. It also makes my job easier. Im using wood glue and brad nails. Later i will put trim screw to to add strength.
Step 5: Adding Screws for Stronger Build
Because i plan to put a lot of weight in my bins, im adding screw to add strength. It's for my workshop but i still want a clean look. So trim screw have a smaller head than regular wood screw, and im using a jig i made to make sure that the same distance separates them.
Step 6: Painting
Im using leftover latex wall paint to add some color to the plywood.
Step 7: Final Result
Now it's time to mount on the wall. I located 2 studs and used metal cornet brackets to make sure it's solid. I plan to put lot of stuff into my bins. I will add labels later. Im starting my youtube channel about DIY's and i have build this wall organizer for all my small parts.
