Just the Thing I Needed
By Terry Craig
from St. Simons Island, GA
I purchased this ArtBin Storage Box to hold all of my framing supplies. I have used other boxes and they were either too flimsy (shoe box) or didn't have the right setup (tackle box) to hold what I needed to carry. This box has a deep storage compartment, a pullout tray and small lid boxes that are perfect for my hammer, pliers, wire and various hardware. I would recommend this box to anyone who needs to carry a lot of varied tools or supplies.
Bin is too small
from Los Angeles,CA
Evidently I misread the description of the size of the bin. I wanted the larger size as this one does not hold much if you are using it for art supplies.
from Provo, UT
I use the box for storing many of my art supplies, especially extra paints and things that I don't always use. It's just a bit too small to put a gallon of gesso inside, but you can fit any number of brushes, paints, anything really, to carry it all to your site of work. It looks nice, and holds a lot of those little things and tools needed for painting and/or drawing.
GREAT WONDERFUL BUY

fast shipping and wonderful product. It has a lot of compartments. The size of the actual bin isn't too big but it's very great.
Great Portable Storage!
By jo bean

I use this art bin to store my drawing and watercolor supplies. Because I'm often moving from room to room to work (I do not have a studio yet) I needed something that could accomodate my supplies.It fits my colored pencils, my watercolor trays, my watercolors, brushes and in the top compartments I can store my erasers, pencil sharpeners and my exacto blades. It is very useful - I'm very happy with my purchase!Thanks : )

ArtBin Twin Top meets my needs
By A Novice in Pittsburgh
I'm new to sketching and drawing, so I didn't have any kind of portable storage as I acquired media and tools. I used several small plastic boxes which were fine as long as I worked at my worktable. BUt they had no tops and so were difficult to take with me and prone to emptying themselves at inconvenient times or places. I looked at many boxes online and at local art stores. Most common were the tacklebox variety with fold out trays that had little bins for sorting beads or other small objects, but they never had space for something like a set of colored pencils or rulers (even short ones). When I saw the video for the ArtBin Twin Top on the Blick web site I thought this might be exactly what I was looking for. AND IT IS.The two compartments on the top are perfect for the little things I might want at any time such as erasers or a pencil sharpener. The lift out tray is perfect for longer objects such as rulers and blending stumps. It has no small compartments so I use old pill bottles to store and keep separate the little things like mechanical pencil leads. The main box is ideal for boxed pencil sets. I even keep my 2 oz. bottle of odorless mineral oil in it. And there is the means to padlock the box.The ArtBin Twin Top is nearly perfect for me. My tools and utensils are organized in one place and easy to access. It is much more convenient to work at places other than my work table. I store it on the floor near my table freeing much needed shelf space. I only wish the two top compartments were about half an inch deeper. Do not think of the ArtBin as a secure place to keep your utensils; it is, after all, portable and it is only made of plastic (even though it is very durable). A padlock won't keep a determined thief from opening the box. Instead of a padlock, I slip a carabiner through the holes to prevent the box from accidentally opening and spilling the contents if I forget to latch the top.For its price, one can't beat the value of this box for its utility and convenience. I'd recommend it to anyone who needs to store things larger than what will fit in the little bins in a tacklebox type box.
larger than you might think
from central michigan
this is a surprisingly large box, especially when the two top mini-bins are taken into account. i can put everything i need for my 3-5 studio classes in it with room to spare. the main downside of the box is the lid...it tends to be heavy when loaded and has no system to slow or catch it...i'm installing a piece of leather strapping to one side eventually to catch it.
These durable and secure storage boxes are a great way to organize and tote your materials. They are perfect for artists on the go!
