New Yankee Workshop

The Pantry

Season 20, Episode 5 of 13

This is perhaps the hardest working element in any kitchen. A good plan, a review of how it may be used by the family and some hard work on the design are essential to creating a good pantry. Thus Norm begins this project by visiting a recently completed pantry to gather ideas. He notes that storage can be very specific to a family's preferences; "adjustability" is a key element. Then it's back to his shop to build one for the dream kitchen. Since this will be a big, tall cabinet, Norm devises a clever solution to make sure it will fit. He continues building the carcass and face frame using some of the techniques shown on earlier episodes, but when it comes to the door, the comparison ends. This door is intended to look good on the outside, but will be working hard on the inside. There, Norm builds a clever series of storage boxes with handsome box joints that hang on the inside of the door, providing useful storage that takes advantage of otherwise wasted space.
