    another project thats possibly applicable to van racking.
    @Kayos @eLuSiVeMiTe

    screw full extension drawer runners to a handy piece of 18mm (although 12mm would do) plywood.

    cut french cleats and screw to plywood opposite side to runners, but parallel to them.

    screw other half of cleat to short length of gutter - i used a piece of "floplast squareline" from screwfix.(from a skip actually :whistle: )

    <edit> it could do with a piece of 4mm ply fastening between the gutter and the cleat, but the full depth of both cleats to stop it tipping forward - i'll add pictures later.

    mount drawer runner on bench legs/cabinet side/van wall IMG_20190314_145644.jpg

    pulls out to access.

    cut 6mm plywood ends to make bins using PU + superglue. the superglue gives an instant bond whilst the PU glue cures and gives the strength.(although endcaps are available)

    they can be made any convenient size, or even internally divided, and each bin can be unhooked to move to where you're working- i have a spare piece of french cleat mounted above the back of each of my benches to hook them on.
    i'll pop up a couple of pictures of the finished article tomorrow.


    the same idea can be used to store other stuff - i based the idea on a "pull out pantry" for storing tins.
    it would also work to quadruple bookcase shelf capaciy. ;)
