New kitchen and there is no space for a wall spice rack. Had a tall, skinny open door cabinet next to the dishwasher.

This was made from cedar from an old hope chest that was my wife’s when she was little.

I measured the opening and depth using a story pole (numbers, bleh) and built to fit. You can see on the second and third pictures there is a shallow gang for electrical. It used to be full size but went to install the rack and it wouldn’t fit. So I got out my honorary electrical degree and swapped the box instead of cutting on the spice rack.

The third pic is just highlighting the new pieces to the cabinet that will support the spice rack. The board in the middle marked “Hidden” is what the drawer slide mounts to which you can see in the final two pictures.

No finish, just rough sanded to about 150 grit. 0.25 inch dowels for the rails that were eyeballed to fit. Pocket hole screws on everything. Fits two rows of spices on each shelf. You can also see that the handle is a little crooked. Wrist and hand are in more natural position when opening/closing this piece.

It was fun making it, took about 3 weeks time but maybe 6 hours actual effort.
