A true country classic, this build-it-yourself storage bin unit is a practical, convenient and attractive way to keep apples, potatoes, onions and other fruits and vegetables fresh and dry.
The secret is the wire mesh on the front of each of the three bins that allows air to circulate freely around the produce. The top shelf is flat for storing canned goods or dish towels. The two pull-out bins below, each measuring 10 inches deep by 15 inches wide, are sized to hold plenty of fruits and vegetables. The unit adds some old-fashioned charm to the kitchen, too.
Because the curved cuts for the lower bins and base are traced from full-size patterns, the project is easy enough for novices. The project measures 40 inches tall by 19 inches wide by 12 inches deep.
