   This Hidden kitchen Lid Aid  is based on Jayefuu's excellent  two lid holster instructable.

   I had to make very quickly ( while my wife went dog walking with a friend ) and still be
   completely removable in case of here unappreciative response

   While I am not moving out soon, if ever.     
   I have a wonderful wife  and It is she,
   who will decide  IF this pan lid hanger is a good idea for her kitchen.

Fun :

 For me it is the fun and simplicity of making this lid cradle hanger
 which was done faster then the time spent to take pictures documenting it.

Step 1: Step 1: Material and Tools

  • a screwdriver
  • a pair of small pliers
  • a solid metal block
  • an old rotary tool grinder
  • a metal cutting disc

  • a single length of 3/32" iron welding rod

Now all I need is the ability to do this with 30 lids and only 8 cabinate doors :-)
See what <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Easiest-Cupboard-Pan-Lid-Organiser/" rel="nofollow">Jayefuu did with THREE</a> per door !!
hmmm, I'd need bigger doors. :-)
Or <sub>smaller</sub> pot lids ;-D
One of these days I may be buying single serve pots....so who knows?
I can tell you from experience that this works great. My mom did this to her cabinents 50 years ago.
Thanks for your comment :)
Excellent upgrade Alex! I went straight to my new kitchen to see if this would work in there but my door handles and hinges aren't on the same level :(
Thanks for the compliment<br> <br> That 3/32&quot; Rod is stiff enough to work with different levels of attachments.<br> <br> And if you feel you need a more robust Rod they are available in 4/32 ==&gt; 1/8&quot; diameter !
Oooo I just thought of another improvement! Going to have to publish this one, thanks for the inspiration.
Now i am ashamed that didnt come to mind earlier. SURE! It is sooo logic and simple nobody seemed to think about it. <br>Thats how an 'ible should be: Simple, genious, practical! <br>Thanks a lot! <br>Gathering materials for that next week.
Thanks for the very nice comment.<br> <br> That was my very thinking when I saw Jayefuu's excellent version of trebuchet's pot lid&nbsp; organizer.<br> <br> My add was no change to the attachment using the only available hardware..
This is pure genius, iceng... and practical, too. I'll definitely incorporate this idea in my new kitchen. Thank you!!!
Thanks greatly for the very nice comments.<br> I bet there is a welding shop near you, even in Baja.<br> A hanger would also work but might rust&nbsp; with time.
Hubby has a welder, so I'm assuming he has the rods to work with it. I think we're all good!!!
Awesome use of dead space. Makes me wonder what else could be hung there.
Thanks there are another style of Pan Lids I am presently working on .<br>
Nice storage idea! Does she like it?
Well I don't&nbsp; have to remove the install and she does like that I cleaned the cabinet for the photos.<br> <br> Thank you <em><strong>:-)</strong></em>
Hey, a win win deal for her. Well done
She used it today and just now came to my blog desk just to tell my she Does Like using it&nbsp; !!!&nbsp; <strong><em>:-)</em></strong><br> in a very friendly manner.<br> My ambition was to please her before her BornDay which is text two&nbsp; weeks<br> using this working ible be a valentine peasant of our relationship..<br> <br> Anyway the answer is YES<strong> :)</strong>
Well done!!
Good use of normally unused space.
Wow your fast and thank you..
