Potatoes and onions

  • February 13, 2017


Made from copper pipe, EMT Conduit, Wine Crates and copper baskets this is my version of a potato and onion bin. The EMT conduit I drilled into and screwed in L brackets. doing this gave me a different way of mounting the wine crates that is easy to do and sturdy. I painted the inside of the crates to add contrast with the copper pipe and baskets. the copper pipe was bent using a vise. this was a really fun project. EDIT-I didn't like the original post I felt the pictures were not good enough so I made new photos with instructions, I also turned my 20 foot tall onion bin into a much shorter more manageable one. and added hinges and handle to the bottom bin...
