I started the project just about a year ago. Sad to say I just finished it this past Saturday. And by finished, I mean sanded and assembled, I haven’t applied a finish yet so it doesn’t match the other cabinets in the kitchen.

Basically what’s going on here is that my wife had been storing her cookie sheets and cooling racks on the vent above the stove. The downfall to the system is that you took your life in your own hands when trying to get something down. Everything would find a way to interlock like velcro and pulling one item pulled the rest!

The chaos has now been contained…

Good job – not sure that’s the best place for the wine (heat wise)... but at least you’re not taking your life in your hands every time you make cookies or muffins.

Very nice. My wife would love it. Any thougth about putting doors on it or will it remain open like this. Also, a christmas present recommendation for your wife is she does not have any….

we’re not really wine people. Two of those bottles are from the mid-1990’s. If I’m going to drink, I prefer a little Capt. Morgan.

At this point I’m just going to leave it open. Took me long enough to get it this far!

thanks for the link Wayne, I’ll have to keep those in mind.

Good use of otherwise wasted space!

Looks like you are making good use of that free plywood – great project.

Very clever design, another down for the KISS principle.

Just finished a project very similar to this; big open cabinet above the oven; deep and wide and tall. My solution is similar to yours. Instead of the horizontal shelves I use the wider spot to store my big food processor and griddler. And since it’s already a cabinet, I get the doors gratis!!!!

Great job! Looks nice!
