« Part 8: Hickory travertine entryway Part 9 of Notes from the workday. series Part 10: Pantry continued »

I guess I should first apologize for being away from this blog for so long. It just seems that my life is so full, some things get by me. Mea culpa and lo siento.

At any rate, we did finish the pantry mentioned in my last blog entry.

Here is a series of pics and some description of the assembly work and units.

First the hole on the left created by moving the refer.

Next a few pics of the shop work. We hadn’t done this before so it took a little more time than expected. Fronts and backs of the shelf casements were 1×12 pine with inset adjustable shelf supports. Lateral stability created by attaching 1×6 side supports, and the bottom was inset 2 1/2 inches to conceal 3 inch straight running casters. The casters limit the movement of the pantry units to only in and out directions.

Fully adjustable shelves (except the top and bottom) were made to fit inside the spaces created by the side supports. Each unit has 6 shelves; each shelf measures 10 1/2×22 inches (really lots of space)

Parts cut and lots of sanding….

Hmmm, hit the pic limit will continue in next blog entry…..

Looking forward to the rest of the pix.

Your work is always so “crafty”, impeccable and attractive.

I should pm you photos of our new log home in the mtns that we are moving into mid-July.

Wife is DEMANDING a replica of your pot/pan rack for her hickory kitchen. Luckily I will have the present one to scavenge hardware from.

Hey C+ (aw c’mon, it’s A+ isn’t it ;-) ), nice to hear from you.

It would be great to see your log home. Back in the late seventies, I lived up in the north woods of Washington and did lots of work on log homes. Sliders, decks, windows, and cabinets. I remember having to make lots of allowances for walls settling and then mating straight cabinets to curved logs. Then there were the visible wiring issues. Lots of challenges keep one interested, tho.

Best back at ya,
