Spice Rack

This is an under cabinet spice rack I built for a relative. This was made to fit the spice bottles she had purchased. I tried to use rare earth magnets to keep the box shut in lieu of the ugly brass catch but the magnets were not enough. The box works well and she is happy.

Nice touch for the kitchen, and yes may have to work on the catch.

This is a good idea and a nice step towards an organized kitchen.

Great idea, I was thinking of making something similar, except make it on the side of the cabinet that opens. This might be better since it makes used of space otherwise mostly wasted.

Windwalker21; The hardware was purchased at Lowes. They are called Friction Lid Supports by gatehouse (item #311976 $2.97 each) they sell both right and left handed. Finding a decent catch is on my lessons learned list.

All; I got this idea from a project posted by Grant Davis.

It’s cool because it saves valuable space in the kitchen.

Great build…
Have tried looking in to some catches like this? It looks like they could go in the corners where there are no bottles. Just a thought.
