Craft Organizer or Wrapping Paper Station
Untangle your ribbons, be inspired by your favorite fabrics, and hang your tools in this easy to build craft organizer. Got a pile of scraps? This is the perfect plan to tackle those scraps and clean up your craft room AND you scrap pile.
I did add some pegs to hang scissors, tape and other items from. As you will notice, whenver I can, I try to improve on the original designs.
4 - 5/8" dowels, 32" long
A. 4 - 1/2 Dowels cut at 32"
Drill 5/8" holes out of pieces B as shown above.
Use the jigsaw to cut the holes out to the sides, as shown above, leaving a 5/8" gap, as shown above.
Begin constructing the craft organizer as shown, fasting through side piece C into the end edge of G. Use nails and glue. Then attach the dowel holder above the back piece (G) as shown in the above diagram. Imediately above the dowel holder, attach the spacer (D) , as shown above.
The middle shelf will rest on top of the spacer (D). Nail and glue in place. Now add another piece G to the top back, following the same guidelines as adding the bottom piece. Nail through the sides into the edges of the top piece G. Keep all top edges flush. Next, add the final piece G as a shelf, top edge flush with the bottom of the back top piece, as shown below.
Cut back the edges of the sides, as shown above.
Add hooks if you would like to have increased storage.
Finally add the vertical divider and the magazine holder, as shown above.
If you choose, you can add plywood to the back. The craft organizer is structurally solid without adding plywood.
