When we had our kitchen redone after moving in we thought we choose exactly what we would need. Unfortuanlty we were wrong. While all of our cabinets came with roll out shelves they are quite small and did not do well for holding stuff like cookie sheets and a collection of stoneware.
So after see a few different ideas that I saw around here I came up with a new drawer to replace an existing one. The new one also leaves me room for further seperation if I choose to later since as I was putting it together I decided against all the dowels. I am not at the point yet to cut dovetails so I used my Kreg Jig once again and filled the holes with plugs then cut and sanded them all flush.
Since the wife likes it and it does a good job, I plan to reconfigure a few more shelves and drawers in the not too distant future.

The idea, the design and the construction skill came together and produced such a beautiful Pan Organization Box.

Great job Chris L.

Very good idea. It gives me some insight for our tupper-ware problem.

What a cool idea! I have always wrestled in my pan cupboard for order (second only to the tupperware cupboard for disorder!)

I’ll have to plagerise your design.

Every kitchen needs one! Very nice job on the plugged Pocket-Holes… one alternative technique is to put the pocket-Holes on the back side and front of the drawer. The holes on the back will always be hidden and by using a false-front drawer on the front… you’ll be hiding those as well.

At any rate, a great addition to your kitchen, and no doubt a very handy storage solution! I’d love to have you post it on our Kreg Jig Owners’ Community if your’e interested. (link below)
