My friends and neighbors are awfully trusting of this self-taught carpenter! This is my first time building shelves for a pantry. There were high ceilings to add shelves all the way up and just enough room for a custom spice rack. There is usually wasted space in new homes. Pantries and closets with high ceilings could always use extra shelving for more storage. The laminated shelving works better in this pantry than the short metal ones used before (upper left).
