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!

I use the plans at WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG to build my own DIY projects – I highly recommend you visit that website and check their plans out too. They are detailed and super easy to read and understand unlike several others I found online. The amount of plans there is mind-boggling… there’s like 16,000 plans or something like that for tons of different projects. Definitely enough to keep me busy with projects for many more years to come haha. Go to WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG if you want some additional plans :)
