Recycled Aluminum Can Organizer

This is one of the quickest, easiest and most cost effective 
recycled projects yet. 

Recycled Aluminum Can Organizer

I save aluminum cans and glass jars whenever I can. They make great storage containers, like the jars in my kitchen and they're free. 

Today I made a quick recycled project for my workshop with a few of the aluminum cans I was saving.

I started out by painting an old cutting board. You can also use a length of reclaimed wood. 

I drilled a hole into the center of each of the three aluminum cans and screwed them to the board.

That's it, you're done!

Now imagine it with more cans on a longer board... or hung vertically on the wall with the cans attached on the side.... or with decorated or painted cans... The ideas are endless and the project is simple and environmentally friendly!

You can use a labeler and add labels to the cans or leave them as they are. 

A great free organizer for the workshop!
