Feature Frugal Friday: Homemade Rotating Can Racks

Friday, July 23, 2010 |  by

Howdy y’all! Alright… this will just be a quicky. This is both a super cool and super frugal idea (hence we’ve got a Feature Frugal Friday goin’ on!) :) Anyway, I wanted to share a couple of links with you for anyone who is wanting a rotating can rack system for all your canned goods, but maybe doesn’t have the resources to go out and buy one. (They can be pretty dang expensive!) Well, here are some guides to making your very own homemade rotating can racks. They range from small and super cheap (as in ‘inexpensive’) by making cupboard sized systems using cardboard, or you can also get pretty elaborate and make the big hefty kind using plywood.

Anyway… here are some great tutorials for y’all to enjoy:

1. This is probably my favorite in terms of being an excellent tutorial, as well as a fabulous looking finished product. It uses some tools that may not be common to every household (i.e. router), but it’s worth a look. Someday (when I’ve got some space), I’m gettin’ Hubby to build me one of these! :D

2. This tutorial is another very good one. It goes into more detail and has more pictures than the first. Again, though… it uses some tools that you might not have at home.

3. This one is a video and doesn’t give a written guide, but it is a great example of where you can “hide” a rotating can rack, along with some verbal instructions on how to make it:

4. And this tutorial is for a small rotating can system that can fit on your cupboard shelves. In the tutorial they use cardboard, which I image makes this practically free. But you could also use some thin wood or something to make it a little more sturdy if you wanted.

Well, enjoy your weekend!
Oh, and just a heads up… next week’s feature will also include a GIVEAWAY! {GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED.} So don’t forget to bookmark this site and check back often!
