Pantry Drawers

These are the kind of projects that aren’t glamorous, but do get you brownie points with your significant other.
We had a closet pantry with shelves that made it impossible to find things towards the back. You know, like that can of condensed milk that has made 3 moves with you and outdated 6 years ago…
At any rate, I made some drawers out of poplar with full extension slides, replaced the sagging shelves with 3/4 ply, and installed them in the pantry. And yes, I did throw out that condensed milk.

COOL!

Really nice that you had enough room to put door storage into use, also.

Mimi “asked” (spelled told) me to do the same thing here. I thought I’d be smart and make an entire “bank” of shelves pull out together. Well, after another rebuild, ours resembles yours.

Great Job!!

O-Great! – now my wife saw this and…, well you know how the rest goes… – Very nice work. “Glamorous” is measured in the workmanship – these certainly fit that description.

Very nice, looks very well built. I’m also doing a kitchen for a client right now, and this is my first cabinet I started on. Like your dovetails.

Hi Sharon;

Good job. Should be a fair amount of brownie points there.

Looks great!
I have a small closet in my kitchen that could use the same treatment.
Thanks for sharing.
