Default Sliding Spice Rack

My sliding spice rack.
This was an invention by my wife for her needs. She wanted an easy to reach, and easy to keep organize spice rack that would be out of the ways once she's done.

So here it is, a sliding spice / storage rack with all the common cooking spices, and sauce...

This was a simple rack made from some left over oak, (date stamped 1975), and cabinettry boards, with oak veneer trims to finish off the lock. The two sliders are single side mounted, but they are very heavy duty sliders, so the mechanism is quite solid.

Tools involved: Miter Saw (optional), Table Saw, Drill, countersink bit, steam iron, squaring clamps.

Material Used: Oak for rails, reused cabinet door for facia, white cabinettry particle boards, oak veneer trims, glue, screws

Time required: Once Material has been sorted out, and acquired, it shouldn't take more than 1-2 hours. Half a day if beer is involved.

Don't undersell yourself Joe, whilst your photography leaves something to be desired, your spice cabinet looks very professional, well done.

After having been tested by my wife for a while now (month or so), its proven to be much better than the separate multi-drawer setup, as non of the items inside jambs up, as they all slide out as one single unit. I must report, its quite functional, and effective.

I just had to post how happy the wife was about it. She affectionately demonstrated her appreciation last night.




I absolutely loved the rack of lamb and tandori chicken she baked using all those herbs and spices from scratch.

Well done, puts me in mind of one built for a friend.
