Making Tins More Useful
The food for the ongoing project comes in large metal tins. They look like they might be useful for storing things, but they have two drawbacks. Firstly, they are big. Well, tall. They take up a lot of space and whatever you put in them would end up jumbled together. Secondly they have a lip around the inside just below the top. This is to help in levelling the scoops of food so that they are all the same volume. It makes the tins less useful, though as the lip just gets in the way. So, what to do? i decided to chop them down to make them shorter:
I'm going to make a few different heights of tin, for storing different sized items.
