Wear work gloves if the sheet metal has rough edges. Determine where you want to hang your spice rack and have a piece of 22-gauge sheet metal cut to the proper dimensions.
Then with a hammer and nail, tap a single guide dent in each corner of the sheet metal. The guide dents should keep your drill bit from skidding across the metal. Lay the metal onto a price of scrap wood and, using your drill, make a hole through each of the four corner notches.
Mark the location of the four holes onto the wall and hang the "rack" using four sheet-metal screws. Use a level to position the rack, and if it's heavy, secure with toggles. Now comes the fun part -- creating your new spice containers. You'll be using watchmaker cases, which were originally designed to store gems and watch movements.
Using a two-part epoxy mixture, attach a magnet onto the back of each case and let them dry for five minutes. Now, remove the lids and fill each case with one spice. (For this particular project, we're using 15 different spices.)
