When we built our house my wife Samantha wanted to have a custom pantry. After much searching and research on Pinterest and other blogs I came up with the perfect custom pantry design. I have created a video showing you the process. You may also want to check out my other YouTube videos for more projects and tips.

Here are a few still images of the progress. The shelves are made out of 3/4in birch plywood. I used 2x3s as a base to set everything on. I used poplar wood as main supports. Birch edge banding was used to cover up the plywood's edge.
