    Nice design Steve! Instead of screwing the door shelves to those shelf pins, could you mark the bottom of the shelf when it’s in place and glue some dowels/pins sticking out a bit so the drop into the pins? That way you could adjust the shelves without having to unscrew them…

      Wouldn’t you just need to screw the shelf pins into one corner of each shelf only, seeing as it only opens one way and the force causing the shelf to fall would be in one direction? The other shelf pins that are screwed in would serve no purpose because there wouldn’t be any force affecting them.

    Just curious why the piano hinge is exposed. Myself (maybe just me) I would have hidden it on the inside. This would have exposed just the barrel part of the hinge, so as to not distract away from the finished part. It would still open the same way. Just a thought. Keep up the good work!

    I am building one of these and your plans do not seem to account for the saw kerf. I don’t see this working on one sheet but it is still a nice little cabinet. I am going to do something different with the hinges but that is just my preference :)…

    You may want to add a rod across the shelves in the doors to secure the spice jars. Approx. 2″ or so aboe the shelf to stop the jars from falling over when opening and closing the doors. Keep up the great work!

    Great tutorial. I know you have built some very nice storage for the smaller items in your pantry. However, your original large pantry can be made so that it is more efficient. I suggest that you make the shelves height adjustable. Rockler has pillars on which the shelf hardware connects at different heights and the hardware which connects with the shelf pullout hardware (sliders).
    I am sure there are other such systems but I have only seen theirs.
    This allows you to adjust the location of a shelf as storage needs change. You can put the shelves closer, providing more square footage of storage. Of course trying to group items by height is important too. I think you might be able to add 3 additional shelves. So long as each shelf and the items on it do not hit the shelf above. Because it is pull out, you don’t need to allow very much space between shelves. You usually can’t see what is on the back of each shelf without pulling it out anyway. I also recommend using sliders that are at a minimum full extension. I am not sure but yours appear to be partial extension. Full extension means the entire shelf can be pulled forward so that all items can be lifted straight up to remove them. That way you are not trying to pull something from the back of the shelf over other items in front of it. Make sure the sides and back of the pullout shelf are high enough to prevent things from falling off the back or the sides when moving the shelf. Hope this is useful.
