I notched the back of the side rails to receive the shelves. Screwed from the back side so no screws are visible from the front/sides. Hollow core doors make mounting more difficult than it needs to be. Modified sides/shelves to 3” vice 4” to provide more clearance when shutting the door. Easy project, appreciated by my wife.

Looks good and very useful. A previous owner of our house did something similar, but full length. Unfortunately, they took off the door knob on the inside because it was in the way of the frame. I had to retrofit (create access) for a door knob because I didn’t want anyone to get locked in the pantry…

SignWave: I actually considered a full length rack. Could have notched the side to make it look like a vertical shelf and continue down or go back to the original width. However, the bottom of the storage is not shelved and bulk items go in there. Difficulty would have been to shut the door with bulk stuff in the way.

This is a very clean looking project. I can see this application working on a closet door or even a bathroom door. Looks like an easy build that the wife would like…..................
