How To Make A Swing Out Storage Tower

Apr 21, 2021 11:29 PM

It`s a pity but we haven`t had with you any recycling projects for a long time and today I`m happy to share with you a new one. We need a few tuna cans for this project because we`re going to make a swing out storage tower. This tower will be perfect if you`re a sewer, so you can keep here all small details. Your husband will be also glad to have it in a garage to store small things. Practically every week we use can, but all of them go to the bin. Let`s find a solution how to use them.

Things you need:

  • 4 tuna cans* and 4 lids (plus one additional lid if you want a cover on top).
  • 1 rigid plastic straw 
  • 1 wide smoothie straw (outer sections)
  • Can opener 
  • Hot glue or something more permanent like gorilla glue or E6000 industrial strength glue
  • White glue
  • White chalk 
  • Scissors
  • Scrap paper or the back of window envelopes to print labels. If you already have some chalk labels on-hand, you can use those instead.
  • Hacksaw or bandsaw
  • 3/4" black iron pipe
  • 2 black iron flanges
