Thanks,

I use mine to hold all kinds of little things for scrapping, eyelets, buttons, brads, tags, ect. would be great for other crafts too like beading, ect. Or you could use it for earings and other small jewelry items. I love these type trays so will be interested in what you come up with. Posted: 5:06 pm on November 17th

You could also use the cast iron base from a treadle sewing machine, folding luggage rack, even a tv tray. Just be sure to attach the tray to the base securely and make sure it doesn't end up top heavy when filed. Have fun with it!

Good Luck!

Be Well,
