Niether my wife or myself are fond of the open type or lazy susan spice racks. We kept our spices on a cabinet shelf and it was difficult at best. We decided that we needed the shelf space for somthing else so a storage space was needed. The space behind the basement door is only a little over 8” and just wide enough for the door to open without hitting cabinets. That was the design criteria and this is what I came up with and built with red oak. The cabinet and shelves are slanted 10 degrees to keep the door closed and the spice containers on the shelves. The top of the cabinet is a counter top height. It is finished with Minwax oilbased stain and oil based minwax poly.

“…when are you inviting all us jocks over for dinner???” bruc101 quoted,
ha ha ha…bruc101 if 20% of 44,655 jocks are comming, I’m sure Jim would have headache getting 100s of turkeys for the dinner! and those spices is just enough for Jim & family.

Agree with all of them, beautiful spice cabinet from beautiful lumber!
