Default Overhead garage storage device

At one time I used to collect my Peanut Butter jars (Jif Extra Crunchy) and fill them with all my odds and ends and store them on my shelves in my shop. Time came that I could not find a thing with so many jars. I drew up and constructed an overhead spinning storage device to keep them visual and handy. If you are interested in seeing the device, go to Youtube...David Peterson... Overhead Garage storage device. It is Number MVI 6007. Anyone interested in how I built this and some of the bolts and bushing used, just let me know and I will try to set up a how I did it video. I did not keep as I went pictures due to the fact that I was not sure it would work until I finally had it built and loaded and then did my first spin on it. As a matter of fact, I spun it the first time standing way off to the side, in case it came after me.

Thanks Rick, that is very kind of you. My 20 year old Grand daughter loves to come by to visit and just spin the thing. Each row is a different set of items, like nuts and bolts, various headless nails and headed ( is that a word?) nails, screws, washers, bolts and stuff.
I use the thing just about every time I go into my shop. I even find jars missing that my wife went out and took in to the house to use some thing.
I don't believe you can actually patent some thing made of wood.

Very nice, David...I especially like that you made use of the space in the center for a fifth row... Geninious...

Thanks Nick. My sister in law is after me to build her one only scaled down for her jewelry making supplies.

My second thought was: that was a pretty neat concept. My first thought was: that's a heck of a lot of peanut butter (JIF extra crunchy).

The center piece would spin with the whole apparatus if not for the weight of the items in the jars. The same with the outside ones. Due to the width of the whole thing, I had to install the various jars based on the weight of the items in them. To try to get some sort of a balance. This keeps the whole thing from twisting as it spins. Could make it shorter overall and eliminate that problem.
I used 5 inch lags (with threads on just the ends) this left the smooth shafts of the bolts to spin inside PVC pipes I used as bushings. And pieces of PVC pipe as spacers between large washers to allow the various pieces to spin with out rubbing together.. The length of the individual cross pieces is based on the size of the jars to be used, and still have enough clearance to miss the inside row of jars as it turns. If I ever get around to building one for my sister in laws jewelry making hobby, I would make it out of 2x2 and due to the small jars, the whole thing would be much more compact. Being smaller, it could be attached to either the ceiling or the wall. Just a thought.
The overall size of mine was based on the length of the light above it and the spacing of the rafters that it connects to.
I hope if you decide to make one that this helps. It was a fun build and wows everyone that comes into the shop.
