(This is a PDF digital download not an actual item. The first four photos are the prototype and the last photo is an example page from the PDF).

This item is a PDF plan for a modular mobile small parts rack designed to fit 13 Stanley 014725 25-Removable Compartment Professional Organizer and 2 Stanley 10 Removable Bin Compartment Deep Professional Organizers.

The inspiration for this plan was Adam Savage's tool box video entitled "Inside Adam Savage's Cave: The Tool Boxes".

This cart uses simple drawers to make it very easy to find whatever you are looking for.

In fact this is a upgrade over the much more expensive Sortimo system due to the fact that you do not need to remove each organizer in order to access the bins. Simply pull out the drawer using the handle of the organizer open and retrieve your part.

Its very fast and inherently easy to organize.

Materials needed are 2 sheets of plywood (one ¾” one ½”) some scrap hardwood for trim and 4 heavy duty castors.

The Stanley bins are relatively inexpensive ($12 USD and $17 on Amazon) considering the storage value and time saved looking around for that one screw.

With all organizers in place this creates 345 removable bins on 15 drawers. This is huge amount of storage in a very small compact space.

End your frustration of trying to find that one screw you need and build a future proof final solution to your small parts and fastener mess.

The PDF contains all necessary dimensions to build this item including photos of the prototype that I built and use with pleasure every day.

Just finished my Modular Small Parts Rack. Great plans and definitely worth the effort to build. Total cost including all hardware but not the Stanley parts bins was just under $200. All items purchased at local Home Depot and Lowes. Great product and thanks for sharing.

If you're using a stacked dado set, maybe add a shim to the drawer dados. If you go exactly 1/2" they're a bit tight. But the plans were great and I love the results.

Adrian, the plan looks great. It was worth your small fee just in material savings. It will also save a few of my brain cells and time trying to figure out a plan. Thx Gary, San Antonio, TX

I had seen a item like this on the "Savage" show on you tube. I thought this would work in my shop. And it will. I just need to make a few minor adjustments to the plans for the storage containers that I have in my shop to fit. I am looking forward too building this unit. thank you for making this available.
