If you haven’t seen my “Woman Cave” here is the link. I fell in love with these JetMax cubes simply because they house all the stuff you need for crafts in a very orderly way and there are so many versions of the cube to meet every organizational need you could have for a craft room.
Since Christmas and my Birthday I ran out of space to store some items so I decided to add more JetMax cubes. These cubes run about $29.99 retail (or as I say $30.00) at M’s; however, I wait until I get a 40% off coupon and they are not on sale (when they put them on sale they are usually only 30% off).
My TV sat on my desk and all of the drawers underneath it are full of Cricut cartridges.
If you look underneath my desk you can see the edge of my printer. It is setting on a plastic two shelf stand on rollers. Needless to say the printer is bigger than the stand and so it shakes when I use it to print.
Ok, I confess I’ve added 3 new JetMax cubes to the 21 I already had making me a grand total of 24. I added this 3 drawer underneath the TV. Yes that is Barefoot Contessa on the screen.
I decided to see how long it would take me to put this little 14.25″ square box together. Now let me say before I begin this is one of the easier ones because it doesn’t have any drawers (with a bunch of little screws).
So it is 3:45 PM and I snap a picture of the clock. Honestly, this is real time stuff…..I know you are on the edge of your seat.
Since I have put so many of these together, I have figured out there is a simpler way to put the initial box together than how the instructions says to do it.
I put the bottom and the sides together holding them in place while I slide the back panel in and then put the top on. I then screw the top into place, turn it over and screw the bottom into place.
Here is the finish product. This one is going directly under my printer with the longer slots horizontal to hold the paper for the computer. I have 8.5 x 11 white paper, some pink paper and some paper that has been printed on one side. I’ll recycle that paper for test cuts or test printing.
Drum roll!!!!!!!! Yep, this took me no time at all, of course I used an electric (ok, battery operated) drill. Thanks Phyllis & Joel (it was my Christmas present 2 yrs ago). Nothing like having friends who understand your love of power tools.
Slipped it under the printer (of course I added the little 4 drawer JetMax cube as well) and it works perfectly. It steadied my printer and the cubbies are perfect for my paper, ink and photo paper.
I’m not paid by JetMax to advertise their product; however, every dealings I’ve had with this company (they are here in TX) has been very pleasant. Out of all the JetMax cubes I have bought only one was missing some screws and a handle. I called them and they sent the missing items to me no charge (not even postage). This is a great product and I wish I had thought of it!
There are literally so many combinations you can arrange with these little cubes. My favorite are the 4 drawer and the 3 drawer. Some of them even come with little dividers so you can corral all the tiny stuff.
Hmmm, I wonder where I can add the next group of JetMax cubes?
