RE: pantry shelves, enough support? (Follow-Up #2)

posted by: jon1270 on 12.03.2007 at 06:18 am in Woodworking Forum

Cutting U-shaped shelves will probably be more trouble than it's worth. You'll find that walls aren't flat, the corners aren't square. It would require a finicky templating process to get the shelves cut to the right shape, and then it would be awkward to get them lifted into place.

Dishes and wine can be quite heavy. No, three brackets per U-shaped shelf won't be enough. Drywall anchors are pointless for such loads.

I might skip the brackets altogether. Instead, I'd rely on the ledger for the backs (use a stud finder), stiffen the front edges of the shelves with a 1x2 on edge, and support the fronts with vertical posts that go to the floor. The oak brackets could work, but it would take at least four per level.

Sharb-inspired Pantry Done!

posted by: buehl on 11.04.2008 at 10:52 pm in Kitchens Forum

We finally finished our DIY Sharb-inspired pantry! (Sorry folks, no chandelier!)

Here are the pics....

Come visit my pantry...

Pantry Entrance...

The door opens...

Entering the pantry...

The left side...

The left side has 15" deep shelves and holds, top-to-bottom, cereals, snacks & drinks, gluten-free foods, cookbooks & appliance manuals, two bins--one for yams & one for white potatoes, and toaster oven & coffeemaker on the floor. (Small appliance shelf now holds cookbooks. Toaster Oven & coffee maker are now on the floor.)

Left Side, top

Left Side, middle

Left Side, bottom/floor


The right side...

The right side has 12" deep shelves and holds, top-to-bottom, paper towels, baking/cooking supplies (next 3 shelves), small appliances, more baking supplies. The floor has a stool & paper plates & plastic cups. My extra oven racks are leaning against the far right wall. Eventually, we will be mounting our broom & dustpan there. (Don't know where the extra oven racks will go.)

Here are the basement overflow pantry pics....they're very sturdy...even if they aren't "pretty"!

If you look at the underside of the shelves in the back, you'll see that we have a brace running the entire length. The brace runs along each side that has a wall. We then put posts at the corners and ran braces b/w them & b/w each one and the walls.

Photo of my pantry. (Follow-Up #15)

Here is a photo of my pantry. It was completed almost a year ago. Yes, it was painted, but we didn't put anything in it for maybe a month after it was painted.

I have more items in the pantry than did when this photo was taken, but it is just more of the same stuff.

I think it is just a musty, stale smell from lack of air circulation.

RE: How to apply cork inside cabinet door for bulletin board? (Follow-Up #7)

posted by: lazygardens on 06.05.2006 at 02:01 pm in Kitchens Forum

I bought a commercial corkboard (cheap one from WalMart) and screwed it to the inside of the door.

If it gets really beat up, I can get a new one.

Here's something I've been looking at, but haven't ordered it yet.

Here is a link that might be useful: Magnetic sheeting
