This step by step diy woodworking project is about vegetable storage bins plans. The project features instructions for building a stackable bins made from wooden planks. You can use the bins to store vegetables, fruits or other items. You can make adjustments to the size of the bins to suit your needs. Work with attention and make adjustments to the design and overall dimensions if you want to get the job done in a professional manner.

When buying the lumber, you should select the planks with great care, making sure they are straight and without any visible flaws (cracks, knots, twists, decay). Investing in cedar or other weather resistant lumber is a good idea, as it will pay off on the long run. Use a spirit level to plumb and align the components, before inserting the galvanized screws, otherwise the project won’t have a symmetrical look. If you have all the materials and tools required for the project, you could get the job done in about a day.

How to build storage beams for potatoes and onions

Building the end components

Building the end components

The first step of the project is to build the end components for the storage beams. Mark the cut lines on the 1×12 slats and get the job done with a circular saw. Smooth the edges with fine-grit sandpaper.

Building the frame of the bin

Continue the project by assembling the vegetable box. As you can easily notice in the diagram, we recommend you to cut the top and bottom components from 3/4″ plywood. Drill pilot holes along the side edges and insert 1 1/4″ screws into the end components.

Attaching the partitions

Attaching the partitions

Fit the partitions to the frame, making sure you leave equal gaps between them. Check if the corners are square and align the edges with attention. Drill pilot holes through the top and bottom components and insert 1 1/4″ screws into the partitions.

Fitting the front slat

Next, fit the front slat to the storage bins. Drill pilot holes through the sides of the structure and insert 1 1/4″ screws into the slat. Make sure the slat is aligned properly and insert 1 1/4″ screws into the partitions, after drilling pilot holes.

Attaching the slats to the back of the bins

Attaching the slats to the back of the bins

Attach 1×4 slats to the back of the storage bins, as shown in the diagram. Drill pilot holes through the slats and insert 1 1/4″ screws into the frame of the bins. alternatively, you can cut a 3/4″ plywood panel at 12 3/4″x48″ and secure it to the back of the bins using 1 1/4″ finishing nails or screws.

Fill the holes and dents with wood putty and let it dry out for several hours. Use 120-200 grit sandpaper to smooth the surface. You can use several bins to create more storage space and to use the room efficiently.

Top Tip: If you want to enhance the look of the project and to protect the wood storage bins, we recommend you to cover the components with paint or stain.
