Simple screw-box shelves
The 1-lb boxes that many fasteners come in are almost always the same size, regardless of the number or size of the fasteners they contain. This makes them easy-to-use, serviceable, prelabeled storage containers. This simple shelf unit holds the boxes for easy access.
It consists of three main components—a back and two sides of 3⁄4 " stock with 1/4"-deep saw kerfs at 2" intervals. Once you attach the two sides to the back with screws, just slide in some 1/8" hardboard shelves to accommodate the boxes. Most common fastener boxes measure 13⁄4 x31⁄2 x41⁄2 ", so the dimensions shown in the drawing at right should be fine. But adjust your shelf unit as needed.
