Very nice project. This is a good way to “get rid” of cutoffs.

Thanks for the post.

Time and scraps well spent – looks great. What is the size?

that piece is only about 4 1/2” x 12”. It was my “tester” to a 24” x 62” kitchen island top I am making for my step mother. I am also making the cabinet / stand for the island, but I need to turn the four legs first. I will put some in progress photo’s up as I also was to give her a “scrap book” of start to finish on the project. This is my first big project and it has me a little timmed so the work is slow going. I like to think things through for a week or so before making the first cuts. Also I try to make to scale dwgs that way I can avoid some of the uh-ohs and scrap wood.

this is beautiful and your step mom can use it on her new countertop !!! I think you’re way beyond Homers’ spice rack , you just don’t know it yet : ) ps….I actually made a Simpson Spice rack at one time and never got any pix of it….now I can’t find it anywhere…DOH !!!!
