DIY under cabinet storage rack for hanging kitchen utensils
This DIY under cabinet storage rack is the perfect way to hang kitchen utensils so they're easy to access and use.
Total Time 30 minutesminutes
miter saw, jig saw or rotary saw
5/64-Inch drill bit
4-inch or 6-inch Lazy Susan Hardware
small piece½" melamine or plywood that is at least as big as your lazy Susan hardware
½inchmelamine edge banding
small piece of pegboard
Using a saw, cut the ½" plywood into either a 4" x 4" square (if you have a 4" Lazy Susan) or a 6" x 6" square (if you have a 6" Lazy Susan).
Iron the melamine edge banding onto the cut edges of the board using the hottest setting on the iron.
Rotate the top portion of the lazy susan so that you can see the screw holes.
Screw the Lazy Susan hardware to the board.
Use the pegboard holes as a template to mark where you want the cup hooks to be placed on the plywood.
Drill small holes in the board where the marks are.
Screw the cup hooks into pre-drilled holes.
Attach the other side of the lazy susan to the bottom of your cabinet, making sure that the board can turn completely around without hitting anything.
Using a square board instead of a round one makes it much easier to install the Lazy Susan hardware since you can get to the holes in the plate by rotating it. If you want to make a round one, you'll need to drill holes in the board that line up with the holes in the plate in order to install it under the cabinet.
If you don't have melamine edge banding, you can also paint the edges. Or if you have cabinets with a lip, leave it unfinished since you won't be able to see the edges.
Pre-drilling the holes for the cup hooks makes them much easier to install and keeps them straight.
