Obsolete CD rack to useful spice storage
Materials: Hackas cd tower and large survival/tobacco tins
Description: 1. Section each side of the bent ply wood tower appropriate to the height of the wall you intend to mount it on
2. Remove every other rung on the tower section.
3. Mount onto wall.
4. Apply printed labels to your tins. Use standard address labels, printing the name of the spice on both horizontally (which will display on the top of the tin) and vertically (which you’ll fold over the edge so you can read easily once in the rack) and slit so the lid can be removed completely.
5. Slot the tins on the rungs. The same principal of the curvature of the ply supports the tins as supported the CDs.
6. Et voila! No more struggling to get a table spoon into the narrow neck of a spice jar or rummaging at the backs of cupboards. Everything nice and uniform and all at hand!
