Introduction

These simple racks will help transform those chaotic gangs of spice bottles and pan lids into orderly regiments. Each spice rack can hold 20 to 30 bottles, depending on the height and width of your cabinet doors. Before building, measure your spice bottles and lids to determine the spacing of your shelves and dowels.

  1. Measure the distance between the two vertical stiles and the two horizontal rails to determine the outside dimensions of your spice rack.
    • Measure the distance between the two vertical stiles and the two horizontal rails to determine the outside dimensions of your spice rack.

    • Cut existing shelves back 2 in. so they don’t interfere with the rack when the door is closed.

  2. Transfer the dimensions from Fig. A onto  1/2 x 2-1/2 in. side boards.
    • Transfer the dimensions from Fig. A onto 1/2 x 2-1/2 in. side boards.

    • Cut out the sides of the spice rack.

    • Drill 1-in. holes to create the circular shape, then finish the cutout with a jigsaw.

    • Drill 5/16-in. holes for the dowels.

    • Sand the edges and surfaces smooth.

  3. GLUE AND NAIL the shelves in place one at a time, using 3d finish nails.

    • Then use 3/4-in. brads to pin the dowels in place.

    • Sink all nailheads using a nail set.

    • Apply polyurethane or other finish to match the cabinets.

  4. Clamp the finished rack to the door, then drill angled pilot holes through the rack and into the door every 8 in. Secure with brad nails.
    • Clamp the finished rack to the door, then drill angled pilot holes through the rack and into the door every 8 in.

    • Secure with brad nails.

    • Remove the door for this step if you find you need a more solid surface for hammering.

    • Use carpenter’s glue for a more permanent installation.

  5. Congratulations! Hopefully you have completed your door mounted spice rack successfully.
