My old pantry was made up of sagging and flimsy wire shelving that only took up half the room in my pantry closet. I made a new system of full extension drawers that utilized the entire space. I decided to take a break from “fine woodworking” and make it out of cheap plywood, wood fillers, and paint it. This was a utilitarian project that I wanted finished as soon as possible. I completed it in about two weekends. Total cost was about $150. The slides alone were about $60, three sheets of A/C plywood at $25 each, and $15 of misc paint and filler.

Great looking set up, like the double sided. I have been talking to my wife about doing something similar. Where did you get the slides from?

Chris: I got the slides from woodworker’s hardware. Got the economy slides which were about half the price of the well known KV brand. From what I can tell, they seem very similar and just as strong, but they definitely don’t slide as smoothly. It’s not bad though; it might be the more viscous grease they use in the ball bearings.

A lot of LumberJocks are now going to have to upgrade the pantry for the wife for Christmas.
