I wanted a simple shelf to put some spices along with measuring cups and spoons on. I was so tired of those dang cups, every time I opened the drawer the handles would stick up and jam the drawer.
This is scrap wood I had in the garage. I had a 1x3 and a thin slat piece. The slats come in big bundles for around 15 bucks. I had a ton left over from doing the bottom of the staircase.
