When I first joined the club I presently race at. I noticed that the guys used to use all sorts of cases to carry their cars. Camera brief cases with dividers, etc. But they would also tease each other saying stuff like "nice breadbox!" even though none of them were actually breadboxes. That gave me an idea.

I had nothing yet. Proper carrying cases were expensive. Most didn't have a nice layout for what I needed.

A store that appeals more to to my wife called "Bed, Bath & Beyond" had a cool looking bamboo bread bin on their website for about $50 Cdn.

The first thing to do would be to cover the glass. The sides of wooden shelves won't look nearly as nice as a fresh loaf of bread. A kitchen cabinet door handle was also added.

Sliders made from angle aluminum were cut and added to the inside for the upper shelves. Wooden sliders were added to the bottom for the bottom shelf to sit level.

Shelf bases were made from 1/4" inch plywood sheets. The sides of of the shelves were made from 1/4" inch x 1.5" inch strips. I measured the shelves for anything I might need at a race. Foam strips were cut and glued to prevent damage to cars, tires, or braid while in storage.

The total cost was about $70 Cdn. Plus an afternoon of fooling around. Thank you very kindly for looking.
