DIY Pantry Makeover - Part 1

I'm going to tackle a home project in the new house that has been on my list since we moved in. Our original pantry has the standard, builder-grade, terrible wire shelves which I despise! I want to rip these things out and start over...so that is what we're going to do.


The pantry is one of the most regularly used and also most neglected areas of any home. I'll be ripping out the gaudy builder-grade wire shelves and replacing them with painted wood shelves and cabinet bases. I'm also going to be completing this project without a table saw! I haven't got a new one yet but not to worry - I have my Kreg track saw and ACS table. I'll show you just how versatile it is!


As a reminder, I have a full build series and plans for the compact workbench you see me use in this video: https://bit.ly/319qh5i


My wife has dreamed of an organized pantry with neatly stacked containers for all of our food, snacks, and baking supplies. This is my attempt to make that dream a reality! This video represents part 1 of 2 in the build series to complete the pantry. Part 1 includes demo of the existing wire shelves, building the lower cabinet frames, building the 3 upper shelf frames, installing the top/bottom plates on the shelves, and finally adding a distressed butcher block top. Be sure to check out Part 2 of this build series - coming soon!
