I needed a place to store my canned goods and canning supplies, so my husband crafted a homemade shelf out of scrap wood. The bottom piece is built like a towel rack, and it slides out so I can slip canning jar rings onto it. He made each shelf deep enough to fit one row of jars. To keep a jar lifter in place, I simply clamp it over a jar.

No more searching for all of my canning supplies!
