My father wanted a spice rack for his newly remodeled kitchen for a Christmas present this year. I based this one off of a G & G mirror frame (from the Thorsen House?). I just used the face frame from the mirror as a basis for the design and made a box with a shelf in the middle and back legs that matched the front to keep it stable. It will be placed next to the stove against the back wall under the cabinets.

The wood is some scrap walnut I had in the shop. The finish is just three coats of lacquer with a light sanding in between. I had the idea to include some pillowed ebony accents at the joints, but I got lazy and I have still more Christmas presents to make. I wanted to make it out of sapele, but I couldn’t talk the wife into letting me spend any money on this one. Thanks for looking.

Nice design adaptation to incorporate G&G elements—very attractive.

Great looking spice rack! I’m sure your dad will enjoy it every time he’s in the kitchen!
