For this instructable, you will need:
For the rack
~a power drill
~1/8 and 3/8 inch drillbits
~8 or 10 foot strips of molding, cut into 18-inch sections. (got mine from Home Depot, where they cut the pieces for me.)
~two machine screws and six nuts per rack, for a total of eight screws and 24 nuts. Note that these will be visible, so get something that is at least a little visually pleasing. I used brass #6, 2-inch machine screws and the nuts that fit them.
~Spices, of course!
~test tubes (25mmx150mm)
~a funnel for pouring spices into the tubes
for the labels:
~plain white printer paper to print your labels on. This is my first instructable, but I will find a way to share my labels in case anyone wants to use them.
Ready? Let's go!
Step 1: Drill holes in your molding
Finally, measure where you want the hole to be and go for it! I believe I did 3/8" from the top and 1/2" from the side for both holes. Make sure to go into your "front" piece and out of your "back" piece to get a prettier front. Drill down until the bit makes it through both pieces of molding and into the piece of scrap wood you used to protect your work surface ;)
Once you've drilled holes into each side of the rack, you have to un-tape the pieces and set the top piece aside. depending on the length of the screws you bought and the width of the pieces of molding you got, you may need to inset the screws you just made holes for. To do this, figure out how much you need to inset them by, and put a piece of tape on your 3/8" drillbit to mark how far up the bit that distance is.
Flip over your back piece of molding so that you are looking at the part that will be facing the wall. Your two drill holes will be easily visible. Trade up drillbits to the 3/8" bit and center it right over the already-drilled hole. Drill down until the measuring-tape you put on the bit is flush with your piece of molding.
Once you have nice clean holes, you're ready to assemble the rack!
