Rylizbeth: yeah those ones are basically the same as I bought, but I did get larger ones.  They weren't that expensive... I think the set of 12 was about $13 Canadian.

Update:  I have just gone and bought 1/4 inch Earth magnets from Lee Valley, to replace the cut strip magnets that we put on the back.  I need to get some epoxy to cement them on, as the glue I had wasn't strong enough.  The magnets are super strong - they won't be the weak link anymore, but as a humourous extra, with one small 1/4 inch magnet on the back, they tend to spin around if you touch them...

Have had the spices up for about 3 months now, and have had very few casualties.  The lids do not screw on, but they don't fall off by themselves.

Those are awesome!  What a great idea.  I was in the craft store in town (not a chain unfortunately) and I saw some of those with the magnets already attached.  They were for keeping beads and pins in.  I would have never thought to do something so creative with them!

rad! i ordered some tins & magnets from lee valley. i'm excited to get them & make my own. i'm going to stick them on this magnetic bar (link below) from ikea instead of putting them on the fridge, because i have one already hanging in my kitchen. thanks for the idea!

whoa! i hadn't seen that before (even though i do <3 wishingfish). anyhow, my spice rack looks very similar to those, and it has 10 canisters. i am thinking of putting another row right below the first one... but i'm not sure if i will yet. i might use them for something else. i really like the way these look in my kitchen! (i hope these photos aren't too small- i just used the thumbnails.)

i did something very similar to this after i got the idea from readymade magazine but hated how they used glass tubes. but i have a fridge covered in crap so i removed the ugly plastic backsplash from the wall over my stove and replaced it with metal flashing i got at home depot and presto! something magnetic, stylish, and handy to the area where i'll be cooking!

i caught this thread a little late. anyway! i still wanted to tell you that i love love love your solution to a spice space issue. it's so fun looking! well, you've found your stronger magnets but i also found another site that sells what they claim to be the WORLD'S STRONGEST MAGNETS. heehee i think that's quite a claim! here's the link: http://www.wondermagnets.com/cgi-bin/edatcat/WMSstore.pl?user_action=list&category=Magnets_and_Magnetism

thanks so much for posting your beautiful creation.
