Step 1: MARK YOUR WOOD
Draw on you piece of wood the measurement for two shelf.
Step 2: CUT THE WOOD
Carefully cut the wood with the jig saw.
Step 3: SANDING
Sand a bit the edges you cut.
Step 4: MARK
Mark the lines where you want the shelf to go. I measured my spices jar to decide where to make them.
Step 5: HAMMER THE NAILS
Hammer some nails along the lines you made, where the shelf are going to lay.
Hammer more nails on the other side too.
Step 6: PLACE THE SHELF
Place the shelf on top of the nails.
Step 7: FILL UP
You are done! Fill up the spice rack.
If you used a nice sturdy drawer, you don't even need to secure it to the wall. You can just lay it on your kitchen furniture plane, against the wall.
