Floating Spice Racks

The pantry was getting a little out of sorts, so I whipped up some floating spice racks to attach to the pantry door. I know spice racks have been done and done again in here, but I had to do my own take on them.

Since the Glowforge store has been out of stock on a lot of the plywoods lately, I ordered some walnut plywood from Trotec. It’s a VERY similar material, with a couple drawbacks… it comes in 12 x 24" sheets, so they have to be trimmed down, it’s not pre-finished, though still a smooth surface, so I didn’t actually end up finishing mine, and they don’t come pre-masked, and the stuff I used doesn’t stay on terribly well, so I still got a bit of staining. It is a few bucks less expensive though! So it’s a great alternative when Proofgrade stuff is out of stock.

Anyway, here are a couple pics:


Nice practical cut.

If you’re not stuck on walnut, baltic birch plywood is the go-to cheap alternative, it can be had for under $1/square foot if you have a local supplier.


Those are cute. I miss having pantry!


The spice must flow.

Yes, I really like your design. Keep showing us your stuff; everybody’s take on an item is going to be different and it’s great to see the variations.

Great practical cut. Looks like you already have the shelves filled up.

These are great! Nice to get some use of the door, plus so easy to find your spice. (I’m a little over the top, and store alphabetically for even faster location).

If you’re using transfer tape as your masking you are aware that the glue is pressure activated? You have to run over it with a squeegee or credit card or scrap acrylic or something to make it stick. I don’t mean to offend if you already know this.

Nice racks.


Great design! How did you attach them to the door?

Nifty design. You now control the universe.


Great Practical cut!

I love practical projects, and this one is awesome! Well done!

This is exactly what I am looking for to make! Do you have a file for sale or anything? I would love to make it tomorrow!

Love this! Hmm… Now I’m thinking it might be time to update my small pantry.
