Paint Caddy

My Paint Caddy was built from:
  1. CD Spindle cases.
  2. A old Breadboard
  3. Old Foam Mouse Pads
  4. Lenth of 6mm "Ready Bolt"
  5. Rubber feet
  6. 6mm nuts and washers
  7. Caps of medicine tubs for spacers or some washers with a large hole in the centre.
  8. Rubber feet and screws

Start by drilling 6.5 mm holes in spindle lids.

Cut of the "posts" of the spindle bottoms and drill a hole in the centre of the top.

 Drill a hole in the centre of your base board and mount readt bolt with nuts and washers top and bottom.

I use the tub caps to account for the funny shape of the spindle tops

The mouse pads are cut into circles with centre holes to fit over spindle posts.

These are used for thin paint bottles to keep them standing up.(a few layers might be needed)

Ok now you build it up in layers to fit your paint bottle sizes(you might need extra post spacers)

Right on top I use a wingnut to keep it all tight(works loose wit rotating your shelves)

I mounted 6 rubber feet under the board for stabilty.

Any questions just post a comment.
