Need more kitchen storage? Want to fill that awkward nook with a custom cabinet? I'll show you how to build a pantry out of a single sheet of plywood!

We had an awkward space in the kitchen that was begging for some sort of storage. But you can't just buy a 9" deep cabinet at the local home improvement store! I'll show you how to build a pantry out of a single sheet of plywood, and finish it off with new cabinet doors, so it blends in with the original kitchen.

Last week, I showed you how to use a concealed hinge jig to drill holes for the hinges of my pantry. Now you'll get to see those gorgeous doors from Cabinet Door Mart in their new home! But first, I'll show you how to build a pantry for yourself.

When you build your own pantry, keep the proportions of the rest of the kitchen in mind. While having a floor to ceiling cabinet would have given us a little more storage, it would have looked out of place because none of the other cabinets go that high.

I matched the door height to the dimensions of another tall cabinet in the kitchen. Even though the doors are a different style, you don't notice at first because the proportions are the same. Check out my post on how I painted these 80's melamine cabinets with oak trim, and the amazing before and after photos!

Also keep in mind the dimensions of the door handles when deciding on the depth of the cabinet. I didn't think about this beforehand, and it was almost a disaster! Luckily, the refrigerator door stops less than an inch from the cabinet door handles. Whew!

Before drilling the hinge holes, think about which way you want the door to open. It felt more natural to have mine open from the left, but the doors would bump into the corner of the fridge and leave dents in the wood.

Check out this post on the different parts of a cabinet if you've never built one before! I also have a full tutorial on how to build a base cabinet if you don't want a tall pantry.

With all those issues sorted out, it's time to build! My pantry dimensions will probably be different from yours, but I've provided the cut list I used to get you started.

Materials for Building a Pantry

Don't forget your safety gear when woodworking! Here are my recommendations for safety glasses and ear protection. No excuses! 

Cut list for Pantry - All from 3/4" plywood

  • 2 @ 83 1/2" x 9 1/4" (sides)
  • 1 @ 83 1/2" x 14 3/4" (back)
  • 5 @ 14 3/4" x 8 1/2" (shelves)

How to Build a Pantry Cabinet

Prepare the Cut Pieces

Start by drilling pocket holes in the back and shelf pieces. I used the Kreg R3 along both long edges of the back piece, and on three sides of the shelves. The long edge with the cleanest cut should be the one without the pocket holes.

Kreg Jig R3 clamped to plywood

Give all the pieces a good sanding to remove any rough spots or splinters. Remove all the sanding dust.

Plywood edges aren't the prettiest thing to look at, and they can be kinda rough. I use edge banding to give them a finished, professional look. Here's my tutorial on edge banding with all my tips. You only have to apply edge banding to the front edge of the side pieces and shelves.

Assemble the Pantry Cabinet

Start by attaching the top and bottom shelves to the back. Keep the pocket holes hidden by positioning the back to face the wall, and the top and bottom pieces facing the floor and ceiling.

When putting together these big plywood pieces, it helps to have a second set of hands to hold them upright. I'm usually alone in the workshop, so I invested in some new corner clamps that worked amazingly well! Everything is held tight at a perfect right angle, so all I have to do is screw the pieces together.

Position the other shelves at the points where the cabinet doors meet. Use 1 1/4" pocket hole screws to attach them to the back.

Next, attach the sides, making sure to position the edge banding towards the front of the cabinet. I used the corner clamps underneath to hold the shelves at a 90 degree angle while attaching the first side.

Then I clamped them to the face while I screwed in the other side.

If everything is square, your cabinet doors should line up with the edges of the pantry. I breathed a huge sigh of relief when my new Cabinet Door Mart doors fit perfectly!

Paint and Install the Pantry Cabinet

It took two coats of primer and two coats of paint (Decorator's White by Benjamin Moore) to get complete coverage on the plywood. This double angled paintbrush made getting into those interior corners much easier!

Remove any baseboards that might be in the way of your new pantry cabinet.

Find the studs in your wall, and mark their position on the inside of the cabinet. You can learn how to find a stud in the wall here.

If your floor is uneven, stick shims under the cabinet until it's level. My pantry straddles the line between the tile floors of the kitchen and hardwood floors (and our house is 72 years old, so nothing is flat anymore), so there's a bit of a height difference. I plan to extend the baseboard trim to the front of the cabinet to hide the gap.

Drill through the back of the cabinet and into the studs with 2 1/2" cabinet screws to hold it in place on the wall. Now you can slide out the shims.

I left off the bottom shelf of my pantry to accommodate our automatic vacuum. One of the best parts about building your own cabinets is the ability to customize them to suit your needs! Now we can sweep crumbs straight into the vacuum without even opening the cabinet door. The vacuum senses the movement of the broom and turns on automatically!

Install the Cabinet Doors

I had already drilled the hinge holes for the cabinets (you can find my tutorial on how to use a concealed hinge jig here). The hinges just drop into the holes and screw into the pilot holes made by the jig.

Attach the other side of the hinge to the inside of the cabinet. The two halves of the hinges click together easily. Adjust the position of the door by turning one of the three screws on the cabinet side of the hinge.

I love the clean, modern look of the Artesia doors from Cabinet Door Mart! They have the classic look of Shaker style doors, but with a little added detail of beveled edges.

Organize Your New Pantry

We plan to use this new pantry to hold all the household staples, and I'm determined to keep it organized! I have separate plastic containers for brown sugar, flour, and white sugar to keep all the baking supplies together.

We buy jasmine and basmati rice in bulk and keep it in the basement, but these containers make it easy to store smaller quantities in the kitchen. The attached measuring cup is an added bonus!

These stackable bins are perfect for storing snacks and breakfast bars.

It's amazing how much storage space you can get out of just 9 inches of cabinet depth!

I'm so glad I finally got around to building this pantry. Not only does it give us more storage, but it also extends the length of the kitchen visually, making it look bigger! It's a big change from our previously cluttered corner.

Now that you've learned how to build a pantry cabinet, go make one for yourself! This project would also be great for narrow bathroom storage, or even a craft cabinet. All it takes is a single sheet of plywood!

Hey hey friends!! We hope everyone is staying safe and happy! We are SO HAPPY! Our baby sis (you know, the one we have done like 3 shanty house crashes for) just moved back to DFW. She’s been in the Houston area for 7 years, and we are SO thankful to have her back. While they find where they plan to stay more longterm, they found a rental down the road from us. It’s the cutest house that will be great for this year. She has 5 kiddos, and the only thing this house was lacking was a pantry or cupboard. So, I built her one! She does have a good amount of kitchen cabinets, but this will give her extra storage space for dishes, small appliances, dry goods and food storage.

A pantry cabinet is a perfect solution for a small kitchen. Now I want one too haha! Check out the video of this DIY pantry cabinet by clicking the play button and I also share the instructions below!

How to Build a DIY Pantry Cabinet

I love how cute this pantry system turned out! One of the benefits of building your own pantry cabinet is that it will be a solid wood piece, and you can build it in different depths and widths to fit your needs. And, think beyond the food and kitchen. This would also make a great storage pantry. There are many different types of uses you can achieve with this build! I will be sharing plans for the middle coffee cabinet addition soon! Look how cute it is in her house!

Building the box of the DIY Pantry Cabinet with Plywood

Let’s get started with this DIY Pantry Cabinet! The body of this pantry is constructed with 3/4” plywood. Cut each long side as well as the bottom and middle shelves. If you are adding shelf pin holes to your sides, be sure to do that before attaching the shelf boards on this step. You can check out our video for tips on adding shelf pins to your pantry cabinet. Attach the shelf boards to the sides using wood glue and 1.25” pocket hole screws through 3/4” pocket holes.

Now, attach the back support board to the top and back of the cabinet. This board will be used to secure the cabinet to the wall onces it’s finished. Add 3/4” pocket holes along the top and sides of this board. Attach it to the side boards using wood glue and 1.25” pocket hole screws through the 3/4” pocket holes. The top pocket holes will be used to attach the top in a later step.

Front of the Cabinet

Build the face frame next. The top and side boards are 1×3 and the bottom board is a 1×4. Add 3/4” pocket holes on the top and bottoms of the side boards. Also add 3/4” pocket holes along one long side of the top board. Attach all boards to create the frame using wood glue and 1.25” pocket hole screws.

Attach the face frame to the front of the cabinet using wood glue and 1.25” pocket hole screws through the pocket holes on the inside of the cabinet and into the face frame. Make sure the face frame is flush with the top and sides of the cabinet.

Build the Cabinet Doors

Now it’s time to build the door! The back of the door is 1/2” hardwood plywood. The trim on the front of the door is called bender board. These boards can typically be found in the outdoor landscaping section of the hardware store. If you can’t find them, you can also use 1/4” craft boards for the trim part. I used my table saw to rip the vertical and horizontal boards first. Then, I cut each one to size and attached them using wood glue and 5/8” brad nails.

The diagonal boards are ripped to 1.5” wide each. I didn’t add dimensions for the diagonal boards because these are easiest to measure by holding in place and marking the cut with a pencil. Attach them the same way using glue and nails.

The top of the cabinet is a edge glued panel. These come in different sizes and are ready to stain or paint. Attach the top using wood glue and 1.25” pocket hole screws through the pocket holes at the top of the cabinet and into the wood panel.

The Back of the Pantry Cabinet

The back of the pantry is 1/4” hardwood plywood. Cut this piece to size and attach it to the back using 3/4” brad nails or staples. You can also add this board after installing your drawers to make that part even easier!

Adjustable Shelves for the Pantry Cabinet

The shelf boards will all be created with 3/4” hardwood plywood. I show 3 in the cut list, but you can make less or more depending on your storage needs. If you did not add shelf pin holes to your cabinet, you can attach the shelves using 1.25” pocket hole screws through 3/4” pocket holes on the bottom of each shelf board. If you did use shelf pin holes, you will want to cut these boards about 1/4” shorter to allow room for the shelf pins on each side.

Drawers for the Pantry Cabinet

Next, build the supports for the drawers. This is also created with 3/4” plywood. Use a table saw to cut these pieces to size. Add 3/4” pocket holes to the top of the top board first and attach them to the sides using wood glue and 1.25” pocket hole screws. You will repeat this step on the opposite side of the cabinet as well. Add 3/4” pocket holes to the top and bottom of the vertical board and attach it in place using wood glue and 1.25” pocket hole screws. Again, repeat this on the opposite side of the cabinet. These will be the boards your drawer slides attach to.

The final step is creating your drawers. I used 3/4” plywood for the sides of the drawers. You can also use 1×4 boards. Attach each corner using wood glue and 1.25” brad nails to create the box. The base of each drawer is 1/2” plywood. Attach it to the box using wood glue and 1.25” brad nails. Refer to our video for tips on installing the drawers into the pantry! And there you have it a DIY Pantry Cabinet!

Building a pantry cabinet

Building the frame of the cabinet

Building the frame of the cabin

The first step of the woodworking project is to build the frame of the pantry cabinet. In order to get a professional result cut the components out of 3/4″ hardwood plywood. Take accurate measurements before making the straight cuts.

Drill pocket holes at both ends of the sides, align the edges and insert 1 1/4″ screws into the horizontal components. Add glue to the joints and make sure the corners are square.

Fitting the back

Fitting the back

After assembling the frame of the cabinet, we recommend you to fit the back to the structure. Cut the component at the right dimensions and drill pocket holes along the edges. Fit the plywood sheet to the frame, align the edges and insert 1 1/4″ screws. Add glue to the joints.

Fitting the shelves

Fitting the shelves

Next, you have to fit the shelves to the pantry cabinet. In order to add strength to the shelves, we recommend you to fit 1×1 supports to the front and back of the shelves. Drill pilot holes at both ends of the supports and secure them to the shelves using finishing nails and glue.

Drill pocket holes along the sides of the shelves and secure them to the frame using screws. Use a spirit level to check if the shelves are horizontal.

Building the base of the cabinet

Building the base of the cabinet

Continue the project by attaching the base to the cabinet. As you can see in the diagram, we recommend you to build the legs out of 2×2 lumber and the supports out of 1×4 lumber. Drill pocket holes at both ends of the supports and secure them together using 1 1/4″ screws and glue.

Make sure the corners are square and leave no gaps between the components. Drill pocket holes through the supports and legs, before inserting 1 1/4″ screws into the bottom of the cabinet.

Building the door frames

Building the door frames

Building the two doors for the cabinet is a straight forward process, but pay attention to several aspects. Build the components out of 1×2 lumber. Drill pocket holes at both ends of the horizontal components and secure them with 1 1/4″ screws and glue to the vertical supports.

Use a router to make 1/4″x1/4″ rabbets to the interior face of the door. Work with attention and leave no residues on the components.

Fitting the glass panels

Fitting the glass panels

Cut the glass panels at the right dimensions and secure them to the frame using several beads of silicone. Smooth the edges of the glass panels before fitting them into place and make sure the edges are flush.

Fitting the doors

Fitting the doors

Fit the doors to the opening and secure them to the frame using metal hinges. Align the components with great care and leave 1/8″ around the edges. Fit appropriate handles to the doors and make sure they open and close easily.

One of the last steps of the woodworking project is to take care of the finishing touches. Therefore, fill the pilot holes with wood putty and smooth the surface with 120-grit sandpaper.

Top Tip: If you want to enhance the look of the woodworking project and to protect the cabinet from decay, we recommend you to cover the components with paint or stain. Place the pantry cabinet in a proper location and move it whenever necessary.

Woodworking pantry plans cabinet

**I have designed these plans with those of you in mind who don’t own fancy blades and table saws! However, if you do happen to own fancy blades and table saws and would like to give them a whirl, simply replace the panels and spacing with one panel and dadoes and grooves of the same dimensions as the spaces I have left. Easy Peasy…

Before beginning to build, always check in on my site to make sure you have the most up to date set of plans, I occasionally update and change the plans to make the building process easier or to allow for less expensive purchasing of materials! Read through the entire set of instructions and all comments before beginning this project. If you print out or save plans, be sure to check in on my site to be sure you have the most up to date set of plans, as I occasionally update things for ease of building or buying. If you are new to building, read through the GETTING STARTED section and other articles found under the BUILD tab in the menu on my site, it has valuable information about how to get started, tools and techniques. If you are unfamiliar with the finishing process, visit my Finishing school for some tips and tricks for painting like a pro and for special finishing practices. Use glue to secure your joints and Consider Painting or Staining individual sections prior to assembling. This makes the paint application virtually flawless.
