DIY Magnetic Spice Rack

Magnetic Spike RackAfter seeing this post on Digg I figured I should post my spice rack project.

I made this spice rack for Bridget before Chrismas. It is simply a piece of sheet steel that I bought at Lowes for about $20. I cut it to the size of the side of our cabinet with my Dremel. I attached the sheet to the cabinet with bolts. This was more for the aesthetics than practicality. Our stove and refrigerator are polished metal, so the look seemed to match. A better (albeit very permanent) choice would have been to use construction adhesive to adhere the sheet to the cabinet. I then purchased the magnetic spice containers at a kitchen supply store for about $1.50 apiece. Bridget bought the magnetic labeling strips from The Container Store. They are erasable so there is no worry of wasting them.

The parts list for this project: – One (1) 24″ x 48″ sheet of medium gauge steel – Four (4) short (but wide, for strength) hex bolts – One (1) tube of white caulking – Twenty four (24) magnetic spice containers – Twelve (12) magnetic erasable labels

    Nice, very nice. But you might want to change the title of the post to reflect what you really built. I came here wondering just what exactly a “Spike Rack” was, in hopes that you built one of those spike strips that the police lay down across the road to blow out the tires of a fleeing assailant, only to find how to build a kitchen storage device. Imagine my disappointment!

    LOL. Thanks. I posted this VERY early this morning. My inner-editor (as well as my real editor) was still asleep.

    It wasn’t totally inaccurate. I zoomed in on your wall of “spices,” and I think “Party Drugs” [row 2, far right] qualifies more as a “spike” than a “spice,” anyway. Just a technicality.

    In about one week, you are going to laugh your tuckass off. I’m not going to say why, you just will.
