Showcase cover image for Pantry Cupboard

Project Information

This project is a few years old but it still serves us well.
Our kitchen dining area had no storage space. The room is a good size so I made a built-in Pantry & storage cupboard to hide all the goodies.
Doors are shiplaped Radiata pine
Hinges are brass.
Shelves are particle board covered with pine veneered paneling & edged with radiata pine.
Internal lining is particle board covered with pine veneered paneling.
3 Overhead storage areas are handy.
4 Bottom sections include a broom cupboard, General storage space, Kitchen items storage & walk in pantry.
There are no front supports for the shelves in the pantry & kitchen storage as the shelves are one piece. There has been some movement but only slight. Front supports would be recommended for heavy items.

OK, Carleen wants me to build one of these in the office. Thanks, Grumpy for adding one more thing on the Honey-do list. Now about the hanger?

Very nice. This must get a lot of use, which makes it a very satisfying project.

Grumpy You just keep pulling these rabbits out of your hat. It's a nice solution to a common storage problem. I'm still trying to figure out what I want to do for my wife. My space is not as wide as yours.

Hey there Mr. Grumpy!

You've nothing to be sorry for; you built a fine looking, usable as well as functional wall pantry that just happens to be about the same coloration as most of my own projects…I REALLY don't like to paint over wood if I don't have to…for children's projects, yes, I' ll do it for the bright colors, but for the wifey and I we really are partial to natural grain.
Looking very closely at your pics, i can see where there has been very slight movement possibly on the shelf where the dishes are up on the left; I can understand not putting in a front support for those angled corners, but with my experience building pantries for ladies of the church. I'd recommend a support for longevity sake, either a small piece of ix2 w/ dado's and the vertical corners knocked off to your liking, for the shelves to sit into, or a nicely grained fat dowel dado'd for the shelves…or whatever your heart desires. But the fact is, once travel has started…
What kind of brass hinges did you use? Wifey wants to know if you can post a pic of them.
As a fellow builder of pantries, I like it, well done! I've built a few myself for friends and family, but unfortunately they're all on video tape and not digitized :(.
I see quite often on the net where people get upset over old threads getting kicked up; well, to me, if these are just virtual extensions of social interpersonal social intercourses in a community of like-minded people in a setting provided by someone who had the mind and where-with-all to set up such an environment, then why on earth, or in this case, in cyber-space isn't it okay to converse about old stuff just the same as we would do in person face to face or over the phone or in a letter?
The fact is, there is always going to be someone new(like me) coming into a site who is going to view pics that have been posted for God only knows how long.Sure, the admin could lock the thread, but in the case of wood and what it means to create with it, why wood anybody in their right mind do that? We all like when someone see' s what we've created and comments about it-it strokes that one piece of our ego's that isn't arrogant nor pompass, but humble and social and kind…I've never met a mean-spirited jack-ass of a wood worker; though there probably is one somewhere…even you, with the handle of Grumpy, I'm sure is not exactly as the name proclaims.
All that aside, I, and my wifey who just came downstairs and is reading over my shoulder & asking to see what it is I' m replying on happen to like your wife's pantry, "oooh, preetttyyy" , in her words.
"see-ya" grumpy,thanks for the welcome…where's the confetti? Isn't confetti supposed to shoot out of my screen?
yeah,,,,I recognized the modisty of not understanding why it is coming back around; but , there are so many asses out there that pitch a bitch fit over kicking up old threads.

Thanks for your kind words Jon. You are right about the end supports for the shelves, these ones don't have any so we need to be careful how to stack heavy items in the centre cupboard. There has benn a slight amount of sagging but nothing major.
The hinges are standard 3"X3/4" brass that are now showing a bit of age

And here's your confetti, regards Tony
PS. The Grumpy nickname comes from the grand kids, had trouble pronouncing grandpa when they were young and it stuck. Yuo know what they say if the suit fits wear it.

Grumpy,

This keeps coming around because there are so many posts that it is difficult to keep up with even one day's posting. So, when things slow down, we can go back and look at special projects that haven't been seen yet. I am glad that this one came back around. I really like the look of this. Adding storage above the pantry, while difficult to get to for those like me who are "vertically challenged" it does provide needed storage for those items that are used infrequently. A vast improvement to either putting up a soffit or or leaving it open to collect dust.

thanks for the post.

Hi Grumpy,

Nothing wrong with it coming around. This is the first time i've seen it and it is very very pretty.
That's exactly the value of Lumberjocks, a repository of ideas and inspirations. Nice!

Hi Grumpy!

I thought it'd be nice to get this one going again. I've been looking at some old posts that I missed.

I wish I had a wall that could accommodate a pantry like this. It's real nice.

I also found out how you got your name, that's cute.

We got a Golden Cocker pup from a friend, & his name was Scrappy, Our boys would only say Crappy,

.so we changed it to Cappy. He lived to be 19 years old.
