As my kitchen getting closer to completion, I have decided to check off some bucket list items.
A few years ago, I went to a home show and I saw a few neat kitchen organizer ideas that I wanted for my own kitchen one day. I took pictures of it and it has been on my mind ever since.
One organizer that stood out the most for me was this neat Pot & Pan Organizer from Glideware. I really like the idea so I decided to make it myself because Glideware wanted over $200 of each of these racks. This project cost me less than $50 (per rack) to make plus some scrap wood I already have.
For this project, you will need some wood (you can use some 2x materials if you want to keep the cost low), 3 pairs of hooks and 1 pair of drawer slides.
I will build my entire project out of ash because it is cheap and I already have it. Found this nice piece of wood in the corner of my basement that is perfect for this build
Because I only needed a small portion of that piece (1-3/4" x 2-1/4"). I made sure I get the rift-sawn portion of it. It looks better and it should have next to no wood movement.
Cut a 1/2" through dado with my router in the centre for the hooks to pass through and made a 1" recess for the hooks to sit flush on the other side
Cleaned it up and square up the corners
The enclosure of the slide is just a simple three pieces screwed together. I am using 20" slides so my enclosure is 2-1/2" H x 4-3/4" x 19-3/4".
Glue and screwed them all together and mounted it in my cabinet. I offset the racks in my cabinets so that I can get up to 12" pots/pans on the left and up to 16" on the right.
