Cliff, great topic.

Sir, if you could, can you please update your tags, to reflect more closely the content of your topics? For example, this topic, I would recommend the tags, "storage", "crates". That way in the future, if there are other topics with the tags "crates" or "storage", and one of those tags is clicked on, all topics with "crates" or "storage" will appear to the user. This is a great way to keep our community search friendly, thanks a heap Cliff!

We load up on a lot of stuff over the holidays when the stores have deep discounts, and then store it for use through the year. Just stack it on shelves.

You know me.  Always the iconoclast non conformer.

 When we canned, we used a shelving cabinet in the basement where it was cool all year.  I must tell you a true story.

 A friend once asked me if I'd help clean out his mother's basement, after she had passes away. In one corner was her canned jars. I had never seen anything like her jars, intricate glass with rubber seals and galvanized caps. Some even had the heavy wire pull over locks. Nearly all were from the early era of canning. Of course everything was bad inside. He made the decision to trash all, after they were crushed. I was telling a friend this and he just about croaked. The jars and and some of the pull overs were worth up $50 each and were quite rare.

In my younger days my mom did canning every year using the crops from our garden. We has a large shelving cabinet in the basement. She used the same canning jars that Ron spoke of. Quart sizes and pint sizes. Everything was labeled and dated so that older products would be used first .Never lost even one jar of veggies. Occasionally a jar of peaches or pears might disappear. Wonder where they might have ended up. :blush:

We always froze our vegetables instead of canning them. I think any of the other suggestions you have received would be good so all you have to do is pick one that fits your needs.

If it comes to storing cans, why not use the expertise in your neighborhood?  As mentioned above, grocery stores have been doing this for years, and what do they like?  In my case, I use those plastic shelving kits which have slotted shelf surfaces.  Periodically, I just use a leaf blower to keep down the dust.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
