After making the Inserts for the corner cupboard I decided to do the under sink area as well

The upper shelf is for all the usual cleaners and “stuff” stashed under the sink.
The lower level is vegie storage.

The right hand upper and lower inserts were made to go around all the plumbing for the sink, hence the appearance of “over complex construction.

The finish, well its now the second week since making the white ones for the pots and appliances in the corner cupboard and it still smells from the paint.

After receiving a comment from a fellow LJ regarding “sealing” as opposed to “priming” I decided to seal the MDF rather than prime it.

Well while they were sitting on the table drying Aurora commented that they looked better that way!

So being not one to complain left them sealed only. This reduced process time by at least 2 days while waiting for paint to dry. With the added result of no paint smell in the cupboard.

Looks nice and reminds me that I have a couple of places in my kitchen where this could be done.

Thanks Guys,

Aurora asked my why I didn’t do it ages ago!
The reason being I didn’t think of it until I saw a haffele unit in my son’s new kitchen and wanted one.
When you open the door all the shelves moved along and out, very impressive.
However none were suitable for my setup, which I was very disappointed about and that set me thinking I will make my own, well almost, at least its better than the original problem of having to remove items individually to find something at the back!

-- Regards Rob

I do not have any concerns if you want to copy the design, as long as you post your results!
