Nice job. Have you ever heard of pocket hole joinery? If not look into a company named KREG they have a very good selection of pocket hole jig's that might have been great for repairing the spice rack. Pocket holes are able to be hidden and the joint is one of if not the strongest joint in wood working and it's much easier then a dove tail or finger joints!! Other wise good job looks like its ready for many more years of use.

Thank you for the kind words. I looked into the pocket holes - they look like a real nice technique. Will definitely keep them in mind for future projects.
