This DIY rotating canned food storage project has to be by far the easiest and most clever way to store your cans! This project is for you if you have been looking for a way to store your canned food that takes up less space than just putting them on a shelf. 

With just a piece of plywood, some 1x3s, 1x2s, L brackets, and lots of screws you can build your very own canned food storage without spending a fortune.

Space and storage are a tough thing that we are always struggling against. Of course, we can address those storage needs but we have to seek out solutions.

We have found you a great one here! If a portion of your food storage is in canned form, you will love this rotating canned food storage project.

Heat Treated Pallets

If you can get your hands on heat-treated pallets you can make this project for free.  Well, unless you want to count the cost of the electricity it takes to screw in the screws.

I found 4 pallets on craigslist going for free so I called the man and went to get them as soon as I could. Pallets are fast becoming harder to get hold of because the wood is so valuable for projects like this one.


The building process on this thing is pretty simple but it will always help to have some step by step directions.

There are some small things that you need to consider. There are details that will affect the project in a very big way if you don’t know about them. So check those steps out. 

Mastering food storage is one of the most freeing experiences you can have. Suddenly you realize that there is some sturdy ground under your feet, even if the shelves at the market go bare.
