Make These Easy DIY Storage Bins // Organization, Woodworking Project

In this video, I take some plywood scraps I had lying around the shop and turn them into some easy DIY storage bins for organizing my kids’ rooms. These storage bins are so easy to make, and they really improve our organization.

    Great job bud! Really dig the angled paint designs. I’d also wager that you could fit an armadillo into one of those. 🙂

    Really cool project. The light blue looks great against the pale wood

  3. Jayne Hemmings on February 8, 2022 at 10:14 pm

    They look great – I’m looking for a simple box to store hats, gloves and scarves in my hall/porch. Perfect!! I really like the paint effect – no sprayer for me though – I’ll have to go old school and use a paint brush or roller.

    They look great.

    Hey Bruce! This video turned out nice. Good jams, camera shots and nice bins. The bins would even be better if they would stack on top of one another. You know, make the bottom of the bin shoe into the top of the bin below. On the ones you have already built you could possibly use 4 dowels (in the top) that index into 4 holes (in the bottom) of each bin. Or even better on the next batch make a route top and bottom (like a rabbit) that fit into one another. I like to build stuff from scraps too. Plywood pieces have to get pretty small to end up in the burn pile around here! 😊

    nice work with those leftovers, I recently used some leftover flooring from 2002 to make some shelves and storage boxes, I’m not a hoarder, just hate seeing stuff thrown away

  7. Hey I'm a Maker on February 8, 2022 at 10:20 pm

    Nice one Bruce, My Daughter needs some storage in her room. There are LPS all over the place!

    This is a commercial for paint not a building video

    Great project Bruce! I really like how they turned out, and the natural plywood and paint looks great. I TOTALLY know what its like to get that perfect shot…with my head in the way. I guess I aim the camera how I’d approach the part – then approach it, putting my head in the way, haha. Also noticed the editing on this video – really like that side motion transition you were using. I might try to use that in of my films; had a great flow to it. Glad you got this one published!

    Bruce……. You’re funny. Love your work.

  11. Scooter's Workbench on February 8, 2022 at 10:26 pm

    They look great Bruce! I still love that deep blue the best. Keep up the good work!

  12. Mortgage & Mitre on February 8, 2022 at 10:34 pm

    Looks great, Bruce.

  13. Tharemy Hopkins on February 8, 2022 at 10:35 pm

    The bins would have been a great solution, but the neat color design made them pop. Thanks for sharing

  14. Mulligan Farms on February 8, 2022 at 10:38 pm

    Love that spray tent. Almost have all the John Deere green off my glasses from a project last summer (2017) that it woulda been great for.

    I can’t throw any wood away. Recently built the 3 pull out toolboards, and shelving in the miter station from scraps.

  15. A Glimpse Inside on February 8, 2022 at 10:38 pm

    Hey man. I love how these turned out. I like the visual interest of the geometric pattern perfect for toys or odds and ends! Nice project very good work

  16. Nick Forster on February 8, 2022 at 10:38 pm

    Diggin these, maybe ill make some to hold all my small hardwood cutoffs. Do you have dimensions or a cutlist by chance to add the your article?

  17. Rick Neighbors on February 8, 2022 at 10:41 pm

    This looks pretty straight forward. I need to build some storage boxes for my chuck wagon box, kinda like you built, to store supplies in the chuck box. Thanks!

  18. Make Things on February 8, 2022 at 10:42 pm

    Good stuff, as usual. Good commentary, good music…good good great. Now to make a storage rack for these 😜

  19. The Naked Carpenter on February 8, 2022 at 10:43 pm

    Love the color scheme Bruce

  20. Bear Maked on February 8, 2022 at 10:48 pm

    Good stuff Bruce! I’ve been itching to get a finish sprayer, but haven’t quite convinced myself to do so. And are you suggesting that there’s people out there that don’t hoard all their scraps? I don’t buy it.

  21. Mikhandmaker on February 8, 2022 at 10:49 pm

    They are so Beautiful, it’s a pity to use them 🙂
    Nice job Bruce👍

  22. HomeRightTV on February 8, 2022 at 10:51 pm

    This is a great project! The storage bins turned out great. We love that you used the Medium Spray Shelter and the Super Finish Max for this project!

  23. Cross Cut Creations on February 8, 2022 at 10:53 pm

    Awesome build! Also, I love the podcast! Keep up the awesome work!

  24. Robert Long on February 8, 2022 at 10:54 pm

    Great use of scrap wood. It always feels good getting rid of some of the pile and also making something useful.

  25. Southern Ginger Workshop on February 8, 2022 at 10:56 pm

    Nice work Bruce!

  26. NedB_ legocity on February 8, 2022 at 10:57 pm

    That was a really cool technique with the masking and paint sequence. I’ll have to get one of those paint guns too! -Ned (new subscriber/fan!)

  27. Gunflint Designs on February 8, 2022 at 10:58 pm

    Dude, you have a podcast!? I’m going to go listen to every episode right now. All at once.

  28. YouCanMakeThisToo on February 8, 2022 at 11:01 pm

    I dig the geometric pattern, it really adds a nice touch to a simple project!

  29. Dekeros - Recreational Woodworking on February 8, 2022 at 11:03 pm

    Really nice boxes bruce and I like the paint job. Thumb is up! 🙂

  30. Tomeka Pompey on February 8, 2022 at 11:04 pm

    You should visit woodprix if you would like to make it by yourself I think.

  31. The Every Maker - Nick on February 8, 2022 at 11:06 pm

    I really like the addition of the paint, while still showing wood. It’s such a nice finish! I always keep my scraps. I milled down a bunch of wood for my Ladder Golf game and some other lawn games I’ve made and I had a bunch of thin pieces of walnut and hickory. I didn’t think I’d be able to use them for anything, but kept them anyway. Then I went and made my business card holder, which is my most popular video out of it. I recently made a business card stand too, though I didn’t do a video for that. I think I might make another for my wife and make it a video.

  32. Revived Builds on February 8, 2022 at 11:07 pm

    Great Project Bruce! Yeah I definitely keep my fair share of scraps. Lately I have used scrap mdf to make jigs here are there. I haven’t checked your podcast out but its now on my list.

  33. Robert J. Keller on February 8, 2022 at 11:10 pm

    That’s a legit Lego collection!
    Great project!
