Build This Clever Storage Box

More storage is always handy, so here’s a stylish way to sort crafts, tackle and clutter.

 
Every home has that one drawer that houses anything and everything: Rubber bands, batteries, sauce packets, fishing line, screws, allergy medicine, hand sanitizer, buttons, pens, old gum, a bottle opener, Neosporin, loose change and random power chargers. Just writing that sentence was enough to induce organizational anxiety. This jointed craft center from our friends at Woodsmith is perfect for bringing order to the chaos. Apart from storing craft supplies, it also makes a great tackle box or general organizer.
 

The secret ingredient is a series of solid-wood pivot bars joined to the trays with brass binding posts. It’s easier to assemble than it looks. The construction is simple and sturdy, and the cantilever design makes it compact and easy to transport.
