Wood Spice Drawer

The wife asked me about how she could make it easier for her to see all the spices and get to the ones she wanted easier. A spice drawer on sliding rails is what I came up with. A quick trip to the store and back with the wood I come.

Then I get to cut up my new wood into short strips just large enough to slide in and out of the cabinet. This ended up being 9 inches by 11.5 inches.

Dovetail joints and dado floating drawer seemed perfect for this quick project so away I go.

Hmm, My router killed my first attempt so now we sort out what happened to the router (Ended up being a stripped screw for the position stop). After 3 attempts I sort out what went very wrong and end up needing new wood.

I move to cherry this time but like the oak pictures so kept them… moving on. Finished product, but in cherry wood.

Personally I do not like the dado gap that happens so I might sort out another method next time I do this.

Attached drawer slides and installed.

A happy wife is a happy life.
