How to Build a DIY Homemade Food Storage Shelf

DIY food storage shelves are a great way to save money and have more space in your kitchen. This article will show you how to build a DIY food storage shelf. steps to build  DIY Homemade Food Storage Shelf

Step 1: Measure and cut the shelf materials needed. I measured and cut my shelves to fit where I wanted them to sit. I used a jig up of my saw horses and had a friend help me mount the shelves on their tops. This gives me an easy way to measure each shelf’s height before cutting it out of the plywood.

Step 2: Cut the shelf materials. I measured and cut my shelves to fit where I wanted them to sit. I used a jig up of my saw horses and had a friend help me mount the shelves on their tops. This gives me an easy way to measure each shelf’s height before cutting it out of the plywood.

Step 3: Drill holes for the shelves. I used a drill with a 1/4″ hole in it (I found out later that I had over drilled the shelf, LOL). I put my DIY shelving from step 2 into position and drilled a hole through each shelf directly under its top edge (this is where we’ll put the screws later). I did this in half increments, and marked where the holes were with a marker.

Step 4: Attach to wall. I attached my DIY shelving from step 2 to the base of my wall using two screws at each corner (I used long ones for extra stability). This gives me an easy way to measure and cut each shelf’s height before cutting the plywood.

Step 5: Cut out the wall. I used a table saw with a rip fence and a 3/4″ miter gauge to cut one side of each shelf (I made sure to get all my marks on both sides). Once I got one side cut, I turned my table saw back to its highest setting (which is something you don’t normally do with a table saw), and used it to cut the other side.

Step 6: Cut the sides. You can see that there are two pieces on each shelf . I didn’t have to use glue to attach them, but it worked well enough.

Step 7: Screw each shelf one at a time. I started with the bottom and screwed in my screws through the holes in each side of the shelf, and then went up from there. Make sure you leave enough room for your screws to screw into, since you’ll be cutting off most of the screws for your platform.

Step 8: Paint and paint on the shelves. For this install, I painted all of them with a hand-rubbed latex finish that was matched to the wood color, and then painted it with a clear version. I used standard 3M 3800-D as my adhesive along with some other products to help seal the paint on the shelves. I wanted the shelves to be well-matched with the rest of my shop, so I stacked them 2″ from each other. The paint and finish were all mixed together on a paint mixer, although you can do this by hand if you want.

Step 9: Screw in the vise cross bracket for your hand saw. This is a screw that attaches to a 1/4″ wood post. A vise with a cross stopped can be a great help for cutting out straight-edged work like this. I put the bracket on top of the base, but you could also mount it much higher if you wanted to use it vertically.

Step 10: Mount the saw stand along with all other parts and sheets of plywood, then use a hammer and drill to attach the saw stand to the base.

Step 11: Screw in the clamp onto the end of the saw.

Step 12: Run a 1/2″ wood dowel through both sides of your base, then knock out all but about 1/4″. This is where your saw will sit perpendicular from your work surface. It should be flush with the work surface.

Step 13: Cut your base to length using a table saw, then use your table saw to bore a hole for the dowel. Drill about 2 1/4″ down into the end of the post and 3 1/2″ out from one side of the base. The hole should be big enough for a 4-40 threaded rod and it should be centered on the post. This hole is for the dowel, not the screw.

Step 14: Insert a 4-40 threaded rod through this hole and into the bottom of your base, then bend it at a 90 degree angle to form a perch for your saw.

Step 15: Using this piece of wood, insert it through your saw’s front end (see below), drop the top, and use a block of wood to align the base with the bottom of your saw. Never bend up or down on this dowel when you saw it, otherwise it will break.

Step 16: When you slide your base out of its base holder and onto your table saw, place a block under the back end of the base so that you can use your blocks to slide it back and forth. Once you get a good alignment, slide the base back into your base holder and then place both hands under the dowels to keep from twisting them out of alignment (you’ll want to use a block here too).

Step 17: Use a 3/4″ spade bit to bore out one dowel. Do NOT cut it yet, and don’t put any tape on the dowel either, or you’ll melt your glue!

Step 18: Set your drill speed to 1/2″ and start drilling (it helps to have a vice-grip base on your table saw). When you get about ½” down into the wood, stop drilling for the moment and grab your spade bit to push the dowel through. Pull it out so that you have a little left at the end of your dowels. Move back to your saw and turn the drill speed up to 3/4″, then set it in reverse (the saw will be spinning backwards, which can help you keep from twisting or pulling out of alignment).

Step 19: Once you make the dowel through, move back to the inside of your board and start sawing. The faster your saw cuts in this step, the faster it will finish cutting your dowels.

Step 20: As soon as you have a nice groove cut into each of your new dowels, flip them over and drill a small 1/8″ hole through that gap. Repeat this process for the other side and you’re done!
