This is a Christmas present which I made for my son and daughter-in-law. He wanted something like the one I made for our home, except bigger.

The sides and door frames are made from poplar. The door panels and inside back is beadboard plywood.

Thanks for looking.

Neat Tom. What a sensible design.; nothing can get hidden. I’ve never come across beadboard plywood; it looks useful. Great gift; wish I had relatives like you and me!

Thanks for all the encouraging and gracious comments!

Stewart, Isn’t woodworking a lot more fun, productive, and rewarding than watching TV? I think that’s why we don’t have more relatives like you and me :^D

Nice mate!. A very cool summer so far, very few hot days but a lot of wet weather. Take this any time but no good for the beach goers. So much for global warming Tom.

Grumpy,

Glad to hear everything is well with you “mate.” I was trying to remember the other word you used in place of “mate.” It was an “Aussieism.” Do you remember that word – something like “bloak?”

Hey Gary, Thanks for the nice word on my project.

My son told me that this was a “life changing event” for him. He likes to cook and said that their spices were everywhere in their cabinets, and that trying to find what he needed was difficult. He said that this solved it.

Those are the kind of projects that are gratifying, the ones that people use every day, and they make things easier for you.

Tom, As usual, great work. It really looks nice in the kitchen. Has plenty of storage for the spices…
