Default Spice Rack

Well, because of the current weather, Im at a stand still on my 3-1 High Chair. It's flooding all around us, and just not good weather to take things outside to sand, and then I don't have the stain yet, to begin staining. And we're staying off the roads, for now!

So, I started another little project I promised the wife. We have limited counter space, because our kitchen is so small. So, to get the salt, pepper and other everyday spices, and such, off the counter, I'm building a little spice rack to mount on the wall, under a cabinet.

Got a good bit of it done today, but not finished!

1st pic, is the base. It's 3 1/2" x 16". I've marked the 4 corners (4 columns), and then I routed a 1/4" round over on three sides (minus where the 4 columns will go.
2nd pic, is the four columns, cut and sitting on the base. The columns are 3/4x3/4x4". 1/4"r all four sides of the columns.
3rd pic, is the rails. they are 1/4x3/4 - 2-16" long and 2-3 1/2" long.
4th pic, is a jig I made, to cut a 3/4" groove, in the center of the four columns.
5th pic, shows how nicely the jig worked!! I think I might make some Lincoln Logs down the road!! ;o)
Tomorrow, I hope to finish this!

so far so good...
build you a down draft sanding table...
save the going out side...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Nice idea, Lee. I have a small kitchen, too, and I can see where this would be a benefit. Thanks.

Built small spice racks for a small kitchen several years ago. They were a big help. Really like your columns. Nice work. Please show final pictures.

think of it as nothing more than a hollow table top 3~4'' thick w/o legs and an egg grate top......
hook your DC to it...
shop vac hasn't the ooomph..
make it a drawer when not in use...

Columns and rails being glued. They are also Brad nailed.
Next, fill holes and sand corners.

Well I finished building it yesterday, except for staining. But then I hit, sought of a dilemma, of sorts.
Trying to figure out how to hang it, with minimal holes in the wall, and a way to take it off the wall, to clean it, now and then.

But, I think I've figured it out. Going to make some sort of handle for it, so that not only that it can hang on the wall, and off the counter, but can be moved to the table, while we eat!! So I'm thinking maybe a piece of 1/4" oak ply, and make a back for it, since moving it without a backing, might be tricky. And cut the back high, and cut out like an oblong hole, to fit a hand, for moving and to hang on the wall.

Maybe, something like this??
