    Use an empty tube of Painters Mate etc. Push out the plunger with a 6mm rod. Fill with grouting, cement or whatever. Cut nozzle to size. Use it over and over...

    Finished my lock down project today, actually started more than a year ago and ended up on the shelf.

    My cousin is turning 40 and I thought this would be the ideal gift, so I started again. The jerrycan was cut last year and the beading and hinge as well. So I started from there.

    Started out with the wood, measuring, testing layouts. First wanted to use cans, but later decided against cans and went for 1 or 2 liter bottle.

    Then added brackets to keep lid closed. Covered all the wood with material, that was a learning curve, but contact spray adhesive works great for this.
    Velcro straps for the bottles.
