Rattle Can Storage | DIY Woodworking Plans

Hobby Shop Woodworking Plans – An easy-to-follow multi-page plan with individual part reference numbers, sub-assemblies, and complete cutting lists. 

Building the ultimate garage workshop one project at a time.

This is a practical and space-saving project for storing spray paint and other cans in a visible and easy-to-access storage unit.


I use a variety of chemicals in my small workshop that come in cans such as spray paint, penetrating oils, primers, etc.
A storage system that relies on the cap to identify the contents of the can has never really been an option for me because the cap doesn’t always tell me everything I need to know about the product.
I wanted to design a project to store and organize all my chemical cans with maximum visibility and easy access. In addition to this also wanted a compact, space-saving solution for my small workshop that could be installed against the wall. Thereby freeing up important floor and workbench space.


This is where the inspiration for the Rattle Can Storage came into being. I had been wanting to simplify the storage of my cans but also have the cans themselves visible so I could identify them without having to take them out of their storage container. This led me to design the Rattle Can Storage system. It is a cheap solution that is simple to use and relatively easy to cut and assemble.

Please note a swivel base will need to be purchased in order to build this project, along with all lumber and fasteners required.
