A Plethora of Pan Drawers

When we moved into our new place, TLOML noted the inconvenience and limited storage of three base cabinets and requested some pan drawers. Here’s the end result; 100-lb full-extension slides on drawers ranging from 16 to 31 inches wide and 23 inches deep. The first set, on the left, was trial-fitted and she was so happy with them she refused to let me remove them to apply finish until the other sets were in place. Nothing like keeping TLOML happy when it comes to improving the shop budget!

The second pic is a closeup of one corner so you can see the frame I made to slide inside the cabinet. I can remove two screws (and the cabinet doors) and slide the whole assembly out when we replace or refinish the cabinets.

Nice work, nothing like keeping the other half happy! When I saw the title I thought your raided the kitchen and used pots and pans for some storage in the shop. Hey it is early for me, I just got up! (laughing)

Very nice! Makes those cabinets so much more useful, especially the far-back spaces.
