Wheel well cabinets for skinny storage

Work great for wine/liquor bottles....just add some dividers; these are loose "U" shaped individuals with a fixed stop mounted with velcro behind the stile; easy to rearrange.

That is one spot we could use better organization. What is the material you use, Charlie?

I used ABS plastic, hot-wire formed for so they're seamless. 1/8 inch thickness.

I figured 1 red, 1 white, and 1 opened bottle. Last one is for wine glasses.

I saws these at the Fall NOG. They are very slick and adjustable too (those bottles of bourbon are always wider than the wine bottles ). Right now I have my liquor under the refrigerator and my coffeemaker and bowls where Charlie has the shelves. I may have to rearrange so I can use these (or have Charlie make some for that cabinet).

That is some tough stuff. I imagine the hot-wire tool is something meant for this kinda bending?

JMacs video is the basic method, my setup is a bit different to duplicate bends to any angle consistently - it's set up for production vs a hobby bender. I can bend up to 1/4 inch plastics.
