Very Nice Pete. Like the rack at the cabinet end also. Nice work. What color stain did you use?

Thanks again Jim for your idea, help and assistance.

The box for the sink toppers is nice. But, my wife puts them on the wall to the right of the sinks and slides them back until they go behind the lip on the fascia on the slide. They go in just far enough to hold them upright and she is happy with that So I'm not going to do something I don't have to. I'm sure not going to show her you're pantry mod, though.

Gee, our 2014 had the wire cage contraption! DH installed for me a shelving unit we found at Lowe's. It's much better than what we had.

JimF, can you share the plans for the drawers?

Looks really nice! DW should be quite happy!

Sorry, I have no plans on the pantry, did it over 2 years ago and to tell the truth I winged it as a one off build to fit unit.

Pete! I love the holder for the sink covers. I'm going to have to talk to the wife and likely have my father in law build something for us. Good stuff!

Looks really nice! DW should be quite happy!

Here are the measurements I used to build my drawers. Kudos to JimF for allowing me to look at the drawers he built. I designed mine after his.

Drawer: 24" long x 10 7/8" wide x 3 1/2" deep.

23-24" drawer glides from Lowes.

You'll need to build a frame on the pantry sidewalls to attach drawer glides.

My frames: left side = 1 x 2's on left side; 2x2's on right side. This allowed me the exact space on either side to attached the glides and have the drawers to fit exactly. I also used the 1 x's to attach to the side walls onder the glide rail 1 an 2x's to "absorb" the downward pressure of the siderail frame, ie: kind of a "T" structure.
