Default Sliding Shelves

We needed a better storage solution for pots and pans under our counter top stove. So I came up with this sliding shelf arrangement. Maybe it will give someone an idea or two. At least now we don't have to unstack a bunch of pots to get what is needed. There is also some space on the left side for cookie sheet and lid storage.

Good job!
We have a floor standing range so I had to dedicate a two door cabinet to slide out shelving for P&P. The wife loves it. She should, it was her idea. I loved it too. Several less drawers I didn't have to build.

Good job. It is so good when we can build something truly practica around the house. What kind of drawer glides did you use?

A neat idea well executed George. Best stick the Laminex on before you get used to seeing it bare!

Thanks, Harry, but I don't plan on laminating them. Maybe a coat of paint one of these days when I get one of those round-to-its.

Looks good! My wife has been bugging me to do something like that for here cabinets. I guess I should get with it.
