A couple of years ago my wife asked for a spice rack and we bought the jars to build it around. Circumstances delayed the project and so did some design questions, but it all came together around some beautiful pieces of wood. We’re excited to finally hang this in our kitchen.

Adding to the significance, the maple came from our front yard and some of the walnut I harvested as well. Using toothpicks as pins to strengthen the joints turned out to be surprisingly effective.

For those clever commenters out there, the pictures were not taken in our kitchen, that’s our entertainment center. :)

Gorgeous piece of work! That is another thing I love about this site. It honestly never occurred to me to make a spice rack for the wife. She’d love that! So thanks for the gift idea! :)

PS: No clever comment, but dang, I love your yard! That’s a good sized space!
