DIY done! Spice up your kitchen

A few weeks ago I previewed my progress on making a spice rack for a client of mine.

Finally I have had time to actually post the pics of the completed product!

I am quite proud of it…as it is made with off-cuts I found on a dumpster.  Love going green! Client is extremely happy…that makes two of us!

DIY: Spice up your kitchen!

Spices ~ { Aromatic substances of vegetable origin used as a preservative}

A friend of mine recently asked me to make a spice rack for her.  Now, although I am quite nifty with the power-tools, I do not really have the correct tools for the job.  However, I could not say no to the challenge!

She briefed me and this is more or less what she required:





So those of you who know me, know that I recycle.  I found loads of off cuts at a local carpentry.  So I didn’t have to spend a fortune on buying the wood.

Let me get cracking!

Material list:

Supawood (MDF), cut to size

Super-strong wood glue

Wood screws

Panel pins

I started off building a block.  Then I proceeded to add the shelves on the inside of the block.  I also added the small blocks that creates the interest of the otherwise boring rack.




This is all I could complete today.  Next is the finishing and painting.  Canary yellow it is!

Stay tuned…I will post completed product later this week!
