When we built our house we were living in a camper top siting on blocks while contending with all the outside needs of a small farm. The house we built basically housed us, but lacks in space, even for two old people. I have just one 10 foot counter that also hold the sink. So there is not a lot of space, or cabinets (free from an old house- I painted them). I needed a spice rack so I built this.
1. cut a broad to fit under the cabinets.
2. drilled out holes that fit 1 inch round test tubes
3. added sides
4. hung under cabinet
5. labeled and filled test tubes
The hardest part was to get the tubes to fit . The wood swelled after painting it so I used a dremel to fit each tube.
I bought the tubes from a science place on line. They are plastic with screw on capes. I used screw caps because I felt these would be easier for me to handle. I had no choice in cap colors so I left them orange and just decoupaged the spice labels I printed onto the caps.
