Since my first post was about a very simple and basic display shelf I did not want you fine folks to get the idea that it was the best I could do so here are some other projects I have made in the past. (Thank you all for the nice comments very much appreciated)
A while back I wanted to start using Flavour Art. So placed an order for 33 FA flavor samples from eliquid mart then after trying them and finding more recipes I wanted to try. Placed and received a 2nd order of 35 bottles. For me It became a pain in the ass to try and find the individual flavor. Pick up read no!,Pick up read No!, etc, or worse take all out the box and play dominoes with them while on the table. I decided there had to be a better way and set out to make one.
I don’t know if you are anything like me but this is what my DIY shelf looked like before.
And this is what it looks like now!
I made this first one to accommodate the FA flavors I have now and allow for future growth. I was also able to put them in Alphabetical order and read the flavor name for easy location. (Added benefit Lorann’s 1 dram bottles also fit)
Over the past few years I had also accumulated quite a few wizard lab samples (which are even better at mimicking dominoes). And since I plan to continue to use them either individually or in combination with FA. I decided to make one for them.
I have since made more to accommodate my ever growing collection of flavorings.
As a matter of fact after I posted last I decided to reorganize and reformulate my DIY juice collection. First step was testing them all and separating them into 1 of 4 categories 1 good to go, 2 need tweaking, 3 good but not my cup of tea so give away, 4 bad must dump and never do recipe again. After cleaning and sterilizing the bottles from 3 & 4 it was time to start mixing.
1st image shows 1 of 3 mixing sessions and how I set it up. I tend to buy the sample size of flavorings to maximize the number of recipes I can try out. If I find I keep making a recipe over and over again then I will buy larger sized flavor bottles. Over the 3 sessions I was able to mix 40 new recipes with the remainder mainly involving lowering the nic levels.
2nd image shows cleanup and mixed bottles which are again separated into which go into crockpot, which get frothed, or get shaken and allowed to steep naturally.
3rd image is a before pic. I really did not like the way it looked and hard find what I needed.
5th is after all done. Much happier now. Printed labels a lot easier to read and find. Trying out the removable address labels from avery. and added a extra level to my shelving for future growth. After all said and done I figured out that I have 3200 ml of juice to vape and tryout.
Every Since I started Vaping and making mods I would keep reminding myself that there had to be a better way of handling my growing collection of Batteries. I tried lining them up in a cigar box all nice and neat only to knock them back into a jumbled mess the first time I reached for one. Or go to swap out the battery in a mod and forget which hand I had the charged one in ( I killed way to many brain cells when I was Younger o_O). So while planing this I knew I wanted it to incorporate my existing charger (works great) keep my batteries organized, and be able to test various sizes of batteries. Then I remembered “THE DRAWER” You know the one (I can’t be the only one) It’s where you throw all the AAA,AA,C,etc. rechargeable and non batteries that you have ever owned and have no idea which are good or bad. So I had to find a meter that would read down to 1.2 volts (AAA) (most will not show below 2.5 volts). And So this is what I came up with and was finally able to get organized and reigning in “THE DRAWER” was a nice added benefit.
And in case you;were curious what the 2 bolts next to the display were for It’s for testiing 9 volt batteries.(My younger brother will no longer let me test them my preferred method which was to goad him into sticking the leads on his tongue :D).
And finally some mods I made in the past.
And the most recent ones 4 different battery size bottom feeders.
Thank you for viewing as always all questions,critiques, and or comments are much appreciated.
