Spices are notorious at creating clutter. Cupboards or a lazy-Susan do not adequately display your spices if you use a lot of them. Commercial racks are too small to take care of a hearty appetite for spiced cooking, so I designed this wall unit that measures 47” x 25” that holds over 75 different spices. I decided to use bamboo as it was available in the dimensions I was looking for. I purchased a bundle of solid bamboo flooring measuring approx. 59 sq.ft. The backboard of the unit is mounted on 1/2” plywood which is mounted to the wall via a “French cleat” The 9 boxes holding the spices are finger-jointed and mount to the backboard also by “French cleat” to give it more versatility.

Liking it, my cubbard is full of spices. Great idea and project. I make my own rubs so I hear ya on the hearty appetite for spice. Well done.
