This is a DIY tutorial to build your own 3 tier can organizer in ANY LENGTH.

No more poor fitting organizers that consume more space than they save - this perfect cut to fit organizer uses every square inch of your cabinet space.

What Do I Need for Tools?

You'll need a saw to cut wood (miter saw recommended, but a jigsaw or circular saw is fine), and a drill with screws or a brad nailer with brad nails.

If using screws, go for 2" long self tapping star bit wood construction screws.

If using nails, go for 1" long brad nails and wood glue.

What Do I Need for Materials?

You'll need a pine wood 1x12 in the overall length of the can organizer.

And three times that amount in 2x4 boards.
