    Bar
    Wow, nicely done, you've incorporated a lot of function while making it a great looking area.  The tool storage / display is super cool, and the Ryobi GDO looks great in the space.

    Sliding Spice Rack : grover959
    Thanks.  I used 28" ball bearing drawer slides that I found on Amazon.  
    https://www.amazon.com/Heavy-Extension-Drawer-travel-Capacity/dp/B01C97YI54
    They are full extension slides with 1" over travel that help provide additional extended length.  The drawer slides are rated for 100+ lbs and the rack fully loaded is about half that weight.  I originally thought I might have to use additional slides but started with two of them and found that it moves in and out really easy, even when loaded up.  

    Building a frame mock-up helped to optimize size and placement.  The width of the unit is 5.5" and still allows the refrigerator door to swing fully open without interference.

    I wish you the best on your project.

    The fun thing with this project was being able to create something tailored to the available space. It looks like it's always been there. I have some other space saving kitchen projects in mind that I hope to do soon.

    Nicely done, looks great.  Thanks for outlining the steps you took, I'd love to make a few of these for friends using cutoff scraps.

    Ryobi One+ Tool Storage
    Nicely done, looks great.  I've been exploring options for hanging my One+ Circular saw and really like this design.  The pencil box and sharpener is a fantastic idea, it seems like I spend half of my time in the shop looking for a pencil.

    Thanks.  It was a fun project and the build was very straightforward.  The thing I struggled with the most was getting the stain to match the existing cabinets as close as possible.  I used a Minwax Cherrywood Gel Stain and blended in some dark walnut before applying the polyurethane top coat.

    • What a great idea! That holds a ton of spices! Did you run into any difficult spots when creating this?

    • My wife has been asking for something like this. I may steal your idea and do this later this summer.

    • Hi! I love what you  have down with that sliding cabinet. I was wondering though how you mounted it to the wall and have it be strong enough to hold all those spices. Would you be able to give me links to the hardware you used to mount it to the wall and have it slide?

      I have been wanting to do something like this for a long time and your implementation has been the best I have seen by far!

      Thanks!

    Double Kitchen Drawer Organizer
    Thanks, it was a fun project.  I cut a 3" opening in the back of the existing drawer and then made a new top drawer out of plywood.  I picked up a 12 pack of roller slides and am planning on using them for more projects like this.

    • What a neat addition to a normal kitchen drawer! Did you use the existing drawer or have to create a new one altogether?

    • That is awesome, really like the use of the empty drawer space.
      Plus its a great way to store kitchen implements you don't frequently use.
