Pantry Pullout Details

      A couple of photo examples of tall, narrow pullout pantry shelf units, and some thoughts on materials and hardware. May 26, 2011

I have a narrow (12-15", frameless) pantry to build, and am looking for suggestions for a full height, door mounted pullout unit to use. Any input is appreciated.

From contributor D:
Here is a pantry I built several years ago. It is built from 3/4" melamine. If I did it again, I would use 1/2" melamine (weight). It has two sides with adjustable shelves. The adjustable shelves have a 1.5" tall lip that keeps items from falling off.

This looks good. What did you use for the slides? Top pullout looks like a conventional full extension ball bearing slide. Please correct me if I am wrong.

From contributor D:
I got the pantry slide system from either Rockler or Woodcraft - can't remember which. I think it is made up of three slides - one top and two bottom. The bottom's take the load and top keeps it from tipping over.

From contributor W:
The proper pantry pull out slide is KV 8000 undermount pantry slide. It works well. I make mine with 1/2" Russian birch plywood.
