My wife has been asking for one of these for a while and I finally got the time to knock it out. It really does work well and wish I would have made it sooner. I used the Rockler dove tail jig to make the dovetails.

Brilliant idea, well designed and very nicely built. What weight can the slides handle?

I do have one issue with your project:

If I show my wife this project I won’t be able to work on the projects already on the to-do list because she will want several of these built and installed in the kitchen, ASAP!!!! I can see her wanting pullouts for the pots and pans, the mixer, toaster, the blender, all of the stuff in the large pantry cabinet, basically every base cabinet in the kitchen…...

Earl- I have learned the to-do list is never complete, so good luck. I don’t remember the size of the slides, but they weren’t heavy duty. This is made out of oak, but it really isn’t that heavy.

My wife likes it, I guess I’ll be looking for the slides.

Very smart way to make a storage space much more efficient. Nice job, if you made the wife happy that converts to more tools. Win Win.

Thanks for the ideas of the build. first I see you buy her sets that match, not all these 2 of this and 3 of that. then I like the lids separate from the boxes. I have been the organizer for years but little success except to pitch out and start again. seems tupperware grows like weeds.

Wow! I really like the idea and your workmanship is top-notch 8^)

This is the closest I’ve ever seen to a way to tame those rouge plastic demons. It’ll slow down the entropy for sure!
