So I set about creating a wooden seed box to store all my seeds. I started out with an old wine box—it looks like it was used to ship Chianti in. I’ve seen other boxes like it at the thrift store, so if you want to make one too keep your eyes open!
Here’s what I did:
So the next thing I wanted to do was create little vertical cubbies, where each packet of seeds could sit. For thin seed packets, I wanted to fit 2-3 packets in there (so for when I have 3 different types of carrot seeds, they’d all go in the same cubbyhole). For thicker seed packets, I wanted wider cubbyholes, that could just fit the single fat packet in there (like for snow pea seeds).
To do this, I cut wood dividers that fit across the width of the box, that were the same height of the box.
And that was pretty much it! I filled the whole box with dividers, thin ones at the back and then a couple wider ones at the front.
The finished product:
I hope you like it!
I have also attached a little rope handle to the side so that I can carry it around like a briefcase, but I don’t have any photos of that (yet).
