Magnetic Spice Set

This craft will especially appeal to those who like to cook often and variably. It will maximize convenience and save time spent finding the right seasoning container. Thanks to this simple refinement, all the spices will be at your fingertips, which is very convenient.

The idea is this: we will make a metal board over the table, and glue magnets to the jars of spices. Then all the jars will be magnetized to the board.

And now, to add the desired seasoning to the dish, you just have to stretch out your hand and take the right one. Open, add, close and hang in place.

Need for magnetic board

  • Steel sheet, painted with paint, silver for example.

  • Glass jar for spices, small size (you can get a whole bunch from baby food).

  • Adhesive, ideally epoxy based, as it is very reliable. But I took the usual one, able to glue metal and glass.

  • Fasteners for mounting a metal sheet in an apron over your table.

  • Neodymium magnets.

Attach a spice board

The apron above my table is made of pressed cardboard. To attach a steel sheet to it, I drilled holes in it and, using a special fastener, screwed the sheet. Previously, holes were also drilled in a steel board.

As soon as the board is ready for use, go to the jars. The surface to which we will glue must be degreased. Then we glue the jar with glue and glue a couple of neodymium magnets. Preferably in the center.

We wait until the glue is completely dry.

Well, then, if desired, we sign what is in this or that jar.

It’s very convenient that the jars are glass and transparent. Firstly, you can see how much seasoning is left, and secondly, when using it, you can not read the names, but by sight you can understand what kind of ingredient lies inside.

Make your life more convenient! Thanks for reading and see you soon!
