      Hi Steve. We do not currently have any plans available for this. You could do something as simple as building a simple slab and installing some folding legs. Here are some legs that you could use: https://amzn.to/2BbQ42i.

    Looking for designs/instructions to make pull out shelves for kitchen and bath base cabinets.

    Reply
    • Customer Service

      Hi Brad. Thanks for checking in with us on this. We don’t have any materials that specifically cover this, but essentially the way that I do this is to build a shelf and use undermount slides like these that attach to the bottom of the shelf: https://amzn.to/2SXGUes
      If your cabinets have face frames you will have to install a spacer to bring the slide in so that you have clearance for the shelf to pass the face frame as it is pulled out.

      Hello. White oak, red oak and maple are all pretty reasonable around here in MN. If you can find a sawyer and buy green lumber to dry yourself you can also save more money.
