I wish I could claim the cabinet but I can’t. I did however built the simple but effective shelving unit which sits atop it. We bought canning jars for the herbs and spices and apothecary jars for her extracts. I’ll be adding a beadboard backing on the next paycheck. I used 1×6 pine and what I think is 1/4×2 for the lip across the face of the shelves. I matched the stain, dato (sp?) cut the upright pieces ( with a miter saw …no table saw yet, i’m saving for it)and set the shelves in the cuts. Countersunk screw holes then matched the putty so no screws show. Looking forward to improving the quality of my work on the next project.

Nice job, the shelving looks like it was part of the original and fits right in

Holy cow! That is way past salt & pepper shakers! If you don’t mind my asking, where did you find the jars? I’ve been looking for something for my wife but keep finding modern style jars (glass and stainless steel).

Definitely not your middle school shop class spice rack.

@ BentheViking..She aint your middle school home/ec cook..ha ha!

@steopa..we bought the jars at trusty old wal-mart. Some grocery stores carry canning products as do your old school country hardware stores. Expect to pay around $10 for a case of 12. We got ours on sale for 1/2. We’re sale/coupon/recycle/reuse junkies. Saves allot of money. The labels she found at a cooking store and made the rest on the computer.

@christef..come on over when you get off work.

@don and jim…thank you for the encouragement. My wife always says I’m encouragible..or was that incorrigible? hmmm.????

Have your say...
