Pantry Pull-out :: 2016
Breathed new life into existing cabinetry with some pantry pull-out boxes. Originally a broom / utility unit, I put plywood gables inside the existing box structure. Now the side mount slide screws are going into plywood, instead of the existing particle board gables.
The boxes are quite strong, made of baltic birch and a stainless steel top rail. Slides are 100 lb rated Lee Valley side mounts, matching the rest of the kitchen. They are all sprayed with Sherwin Williams Kem Aqua waterborne lacquer – this top coat lasts and has great wear-ability and is seriously stain resistant.
Although it is not my preference to put drawer boxes behind a hinged door, I had to use the existing cabinetry. Making this unit with drawer fronts would have meant respraying the entire kitchens doors and drawer fronts.
