I made this spice rack and it was asked how I did it.  Here are the links to making this handy kitchen tool.

Here are the basic instructions.
This is the basic idea.  I took liberty in how I produced this.

These are the supplies I used:
30-2.5 oz tins and 10-4 oz tins
Neodymium Rare Earth Magnets I used 2 per 2.5 oz container and 3 per 4 oz container, plus I bought more to play with.  These are not cheap, but they work better than any other magnet option I have found.  This is the best price I have found for these magnets.
Magnet Board (IKEA) I felt it would be too easy to knock these off the refrigerator when the door got slammed.
J-B Weld I bought it at Wal-Mart
Lable Maker I bought this unit at Wal-Mart and clear labels.  I labeled them on the front in clear and on the back in white.  This is if multiple containers are ever opened and hard to identify.

The bottom 10 containers are the 4 oz and the rest are the 2.5 oz.  I think I may order 2 more just to have even rows.  I'm a bit OCD like that.
