Pantry Drawers

Purchased a new to us 2016 Ventana LE 4037 about two months ago. Wife did not like the deep pantry shelves because it was difficult to retrieve items in the back. Thanks to tips and advise from our good friend Bill Hunt, I purchased extension slides, built drawers and installed them. Now DW (and I) can easily get to whatever we need. I'm not a good woodworker like Bill but took my time and these were not difficult to build. Spent more time engineering what size to make extension spacers and where to install them than building the drawers. BTW.....these extensions were not cheap. Could buy one set for about $25 (needed 4) or could get a box of 10 for $85 which I did. Go figure. In any event I have 6 sets left I'll sell real cheap is anyone is interested. PM me.

I wouldn't discount your cabinetry skills as those look very nice. The reason I do metal fabrication is that I suck at wood work and don't have the patience. I envy those that do nice wood working. When I bugger up metal, I just weld some more on.

Nice work. Don't cut yourself short. You started off in the right direction as one key to a successful project, whether, wood, metal or other is to think it through and develop a good plan.

Beautiful Job!

Those pantry shelves look professionally installed!

I am in the process of building a 2021 Ventana and I am being told that if I get the full size Whirlpool refrigerator (19.7 cubic feet) with the french doors that I will lose the pantry.
It looks like you have the whirlpool fridge with the french doors and the pantry as well. Do you know the size of your fridge? It certainly looks big enough to me!
I would rather not lose the pantry if I don't have to. Thanks!
